Jackknifed Semi Snarls Traffic on Interstate 80 East

Posted by wlpo on August 12, 2016

Police and emergency crews are worked Friday morning at the scene of an accident that jammed traffic on Interstate 80 Eastbound between the Peru and LaSalle exits.

Initial calls came in about a jackknifed two-trailer semi shortly before 9:30. The semi was reportedly blocking the left lane and as a result traffic was at a standstill behind the scene.

Dispatchers did report that no extrication would be needed as the driver had already gotten out of the truck. Crews had the accident cleaned up and traffic moving again around 12:30.
