Semi Rollover In Western Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on June 11, 2013

A semi driver was flown to a Quad Cities hospital after veering off Interstate 80 near Sheffield.

A medic copter landed on the eastbound lanes of I-80 just before noon yesterday to transport Scott McMeen of Hillsdale.   Troopers say McMeen was eastbound on I-80 near Sheffield when for whatever reason he drove thru the median and into oncoming traffic.  McMeen hit a truck driven by Nicholas Farber of Pennsylvania.

While McMeen was flown to the Quad Cities, Farber and a passenger were taken by ambulance to the Kewanee hospital.

McMeen was ticketed for improper lane use.  The crash didn’t cause any lane blockage.
