Rollover Crash at I-80/I-55 Junction Injures Driver, Police Say

The accident was the second to occur at that location in the last week.

For the second time in a week, a rollover accident at the junction of interstates 55 and 80 has left a driver injured, the Illinois State Police said.

The most recent crash occurred at about 7 a.m. Friday as the driver was eastbound on I-80 at the juncture where traffic merges onto I-55, Sgt. Scott Angus said.

Although no details of what caused the accident were available, Angus said the driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet. No other vehicles were involved.

A similar accident occurred on Jan. 10, when a truck driver rolled his semi as he was attempting to go from eastbound I-80 onto northbound I-55 at about 2:40 p.m., state police said. In that case, the driver was also injured and transported to Presence St. Joseph.

When are they going to fix that junction and at Larkin? So dangerous, especially with the truck traffic.
