Semi Wrecks Near Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on November 16, 2010

A truck driver from Iowa is in fair condition after crashing into a tree near Ottawa.

David Satterlee told state police that he started to feel dizzy and blacked out while heading west on Interstate 80.  He drove across the grass median, across both lanes of eastbound traffic and ended up hitting a tree.  Satterlee was flown to St. Francis Medical Center for treatment.

The crash happened just before 7:30 Monday night and backed up traffic for some time.

Satterlee was ticketed for improper lane usage.
