Posted by wlpo on June 19, 2011

A crash involving a pickup truck and semi truck sent five people to area hospitals while snarling traffic on Interstate 80.  The accident happened around 6am Sunday near Utica.

Utica Fire Chief Gary Gbur says the first reports were that several people were entrapped in the pickup truck which had rolled over and crashed with the semi.

Crews removed five people from the pickup.  Two were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru while three others were taken to Ottawa Regional Hospital.  Their names and conditions have not been made available yet.

Both eastbound lanes were closed for a couple of hours.
