Overturned semi snarls traffic near the I-80 and I-39 interchange

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2016

Cleanup crews spent much of Thursday morning getting a semi back upright after it overturned onto its side near the Interstate 80 and Interstate 39 interchange.

The crash happened around 8 o’clock in the morning. The semi rolled while going eastbound on I-80. The rig blocked the right lane of traffic but the left lane stayed open. Crews got the semi upright more than two hours after it overturned.

La Salle paramedics took two people from the scene to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru with minor injuries.
