A head-on collision involving three semi-trailers on I-90 approaching Illinois Route 47 caused lengthy traffic delays on Thursday morning.
According to the Illinois State Police, a truck heading eastbound had somehow crossed the median in to on-coming traffic, crashing into another trailer heading in the opposite direction.
The full extent of the injuries has not been reported yet, however emergency medical personnel did arrive at the scene, and at least one person was transported to a hospital as a result of the crash.
Due to their sheer size and weight, tractor trailers, pose a danger to other motorists, including truck driver’s themselves. Serious truck accidents not only log up traffic, but also often result in severe injuries.
