A woman is in serious condition after being hit while checking on her semi’s tire along Interstate 80 near Ottawa.

State troopers say Linda Shelton parked her semi on the shoulder of eastbound I-80 Friday afternoon because of a flat tire. While outside the truck, she was hit by an oncoming semi driven by Andrzej Skoropad. Skoropad wasn’t hurt but was ticketed for improper lane usage.

Shelton meanwhile was flown to OSF St. Francis Medical Center where she was listed in serious condition Friday afternoon. The crash brought I-80 traffic to a standstill for several hours.
