PLAINFIELD – Traffic on Interstate 55 north ground to a halt Wednesday morning after a vehicle crashed into a wall near Plainfield.
Plainfield firefighters and Illinois State Police responded just before 9 a.m. to mile marker 259, near Plainfield, for a reported crash, Plainfield Fire Deputy Chief Jon Stratton said.
Richard J. Guerra, 61, of Joliet, was driving a pickup truck north on I-55 when he crossed all the lanes to his right and went off the roadway, Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Don Orseno said. The front of Guerra's truck struck the concrete wall, the truck spun and it came to rest facing the opposite direction.
No one was injured in the incident, but the crash snarled traffic northbound from Route 30 into Bolingbrook.
Guerra was cited for driving too fast for conditions.
