Semi hauling corn overturns at the I-80 and I-39 interchange

Some clean ups are harder than others after a semi loses its load.

A big rig hauling corn overturned Tuesday morning on the Interstate 39 southbound ramp to eastbound Interstate 80. Troopers say 53-year-old Dwain Plumless of St. Elmo failed to negotiate a curve, left the ramp and overturned spilling some corn.

Plumless was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru. He was ticketed for improper lane usage.
