Two injured in truck accident on I-80

TROY TOWNSHIP – Two drivers were injured in the first of two truck accidents on local interstates Wednesday morning.

One lane on westbound Interstate 80 was closed in the morning because of a crash between two trucks and remained closed until the afternoon.

A Nicor box truck and Wal-Mart semitrailer crashed on westbound I-80 just west of Interstate 55 at about 8 a.m., according to police.

The drivers suffered injuries. One was airlifted by helicopter to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, while the other was taken by ambulance to Morris Hospital.

I-55 crash

Another crash occurred Tuesday morning on Interstate 55 near Route 6, when a semitrailer went off the road and into a ditch. No one was injured.

State police said that accident was cleared and all lanes were reopened shortly after 11 a.m.

This story has been changed to correct the type of utility box truck involved in the crash. A Nicor truck was involved. The Herald-News regrets the error.
