Truck accident sends four to hospital
According to Illinois State Police, a multi-vehicle truck accident on Interstate 80 sent four to the hospital.
The accident occurred as a box truck was traveling east down the roadway and was rear ended by a passenger vehicle. The collision left the vehicles disabled on the roadway. A semi-truck, also traveling east, then tried to avoid the collision and swerved into the median.
This caused the semi to flip over onto its side. Emergency crews rushed to the scene and extricated two people from the car and two others from the semi. All four were then transported to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Our thought are with the victims are they recover.
