EDWARDSVILLE — A driver claims he was injured in a crash on Interstate 55 in Hamel last year.
Wesley Huff filed a complaint April 25 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Jason R. Carrigan alleging Carrigan failed to maintain proper control of his vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 3, he was traveling south on I-55 near milepost 28 when Carrigan's vehicle struck the rear of his vehicle. Huff claims he suffered extensive injuries to his head, neck, back, limbs and body as a whole.
