Semi Jackknife Backs Traffic up for Miles East of Princeton

Posted by wlpo on November 23, 2016

A stretch of Interstate 80 was closed near Princeton early Wednesday afternoon due to a jackknifed semi.

State troopers say 74-year old Joseph Richardson of Riverdale was eastbound on I-80 just east of Princeton when his semi jackknifed partially into the median. He was ticketed for improper lane usage but not hurt.

In the hour following the crash, traffic backed up for 3 miles west of Princeton. It took crews two hours to get the wreck fully cleaned up.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
