Accident on I-80 causes traffic backups

Posted by wlpo on July 12, 2013

Just when you were trying to get home Friday evening, an accident involving a truck pulling a trailer stopped traffic on westbound Interstate 80.

          It happened around 4:30pm Friday near the Interstate 39 interchange.  Traffic was backed up beyond the Utica Route 178 exit.

          Shortly after that a minor accident on eastbound I-80 east of I-39 apparently caused a car to start on fire. 

          Illinois State Police and La Salle Fire and Ambulance were at the crash.  No one was hurt but traffic was backed up for more than 30 minutes on I-80 and Route 6 in Utica.
