Police are still trying to find out what caused a semi to jackknife into a median Tuesday morning in Bureau County.

According to the Illinois State Police, Charles Dunlap of Alabama was going west on Interstate 80 west of Ladd when his semi ran into the median. The reason is unknown at this time, but after the semi went into the median it jackknifed before coming to rest partially in the eastbound lanes.

Both Dunlap and his passenger, Gerald Zimmerman from North Carolina, would have to be taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley. Dunlap would also be ticketed for improper lane use in the accident.
