I-80 Rollover In Bureau County Leaves Woman In Critical Condition

Posted by wlpo on September 25, 2013

Imagine driving along minding your own business on the interstate when you see a truck flying towards you.

State Police say Jean Simpson of Palatine was eastbound on Interstate 80 near Sheffield yesterday afternoon when she drove into the median and had her pickup go airborne.  The truck rolled before stopping on its top in the westbound lanes.

Simpson was pinned inside.  She was eventually freed and flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

Simpson is in critical condition.
