CHANNAHON — A pickup truck driver suffered injuries that were not life-threatening when his vehicle collided Thursday night with an 18-wheeler's unhitched trailer along westbound Interstate 80 in the Channahon area.
Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Sergio Ortiz said Friday a semitrailer was traveling westbound on I-80 at milepost 125 when it lost its double bottom trailer. The crash occurred about 10:45 p.m. Thursday.
A small fire broke out and the driver of the pickup was extricated and transported to a nearby hospital. Westbound I-80 lanes were shut down for about an hour and a half Thursday night.
Neither of the drivers' names, ages or genders were immediately available. Ortiz said he was not aware of any issued citations.
