Mendota paramedic RandySimpson said his crew was called to the site  2 miles south of the PawPaw exit on northbound I-39 at 8:55am. Simpson said a pickup style truck pulling a trailer of some type tipped over blocking the road. According to Simpson,  the 2 occupants required extrication and were taken to the Rochelle hospital.

And, while EMS and police were tending to the first accident, 2 cars collided nearby in the southbound lanes.  The drivers from each car were transported to OSF ST. Paul’s at Mendota.  Lee County Sheriff’s office handled both accidents and have not issued a report yet.
