EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist claims he was injured in a Troy collision on Interstate 55 caused by another driver's negligence.
Dallas Cleveland filed a complaint on Feb. 26 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Andrew Ahlers, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 10, 2016, he was driving a motor vehicle southbound on Interstate 55 at its intersection with state Route 162 in Troy when the defendant collided with his vehicle.
