An East Alton man was injured while riding an all terrain vehicle on the roadway Sunday evening.  31 year old Terry Leverett of the 100 block of Sheppard Street suffered minor injuries and was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital for treatment, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.

Leverett was reportedly driving the ATV on Airline Drive around 6:30pm Sunday when it was struck by a passing vehicle.  Sheriff Bob Hertz understands ATV drivers like to enjoy their vehicles, but using them on public roads is against the law:
