Flipped semi redirects traffic on I-80 near La Salle

Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2016

If you’ve been following the story of a semi snarling traffic on Interstate 80 near La Salle, the driver wasn’t hurt.

Igor Fedula from Tacoma, Washington was merging from northbound Interstate 39 onto eastbound Interstate 80 last evening when he drove off the ramp and overturned in the eastbound lanes of I-80. Eastbound I-80 traffic was rerouted to I-39 for several hours during the wreck clean up.

Fedula wasn’t injured but was ticketed for improper lane usage.
