Truck fire snarls interstate traffic near Princeton

Posted by wlpo on June 21, 2016

Staying off of Interstate 80 seems like a better idea everyday.

Traffic was snarled for a couple hours Tuesday morning on the interstate near Princeton. The call to Princeton firefighters came in around 6:30 about a truck on fire headed eastbound. The truck was hauling at least three vehicles which also caught fire.

Firefighters, tow truck crews, IDOT workers and the state police were able to clear the scene up at around 9. Nobody was hurt.
