Semi-truck crash closes ramp at I-80 and I-39 interchange

Posted by wlpo on June 17, 2015

A semi rollover took about six hours to clean up at the intersection of Interstates 80 and 39.

State troopers say 33-year-old Justin Kristich of Streator was westbound on I-80 just after 11 Wednesday morning when he overturned his semi on the southbound, I-39 ramp. He was hauling steel beams which took all afternoon to pick up.

Kristich was taken to a local hospital. First responders called for a medical helicopter to come for Kristich but all declined to fly in the cloudy conditions.
