Semi rollover near Princeton diverts interstate traffic

Posted by wlpo on September 30, 2015

There was more traffic than usual overnight in Princeton.

A semi rolled over while going westbound on Interstate 80 around midnight Tuesday night, causing westbound traffic to be taken off of the interstate. Jose Manuel Trujillo of Summit was heading west when he drove off his semi off the road and into the median, re-entered the roadway and overturned his semi.

The rollover happened about four miles west of Princeton so traffic going west was diverted onto Route 26 to Route 6 and then back onto Interstate 80 past the accident scene from midnight to six Wednesday morning.

Trujillo wasn’t hurt.
