Truck Flips Over On Ramp To Stevenson

HODGKINS, Ill. (CBS) — A semi-trailer truck flipped over early Tuesday the busy ramp from the Stevenson Expressway to LaGrange Road.

The accident happened at 2:30 a.m. on the ramp from northbound LaGrange Road to the Stevenson, CBS 2’s Kris Habermehl reported. A worker in a Bobcat vehicle was required to enter the overturned trailer and remove its contents.

During the morning rush, the overturned truck remained on the ramp, and the Illinois Department of Transportation set up a blockade at the scene.

Delays on the Stevenson extended from just past Lemont Road to LaGrange Road.

    I was the only one who saw the accident take place for it happened right next to me as I was exiting off i55 and going to Lagrange south. I pulled over and called 911 and stayed with the driver until the police arrived. I would like to make a complaint about the state police officer who handled the accident because twice her referred to the driver to me as ” a f’ing idiot” which I felt was very unprofessional and very unnecessary, you know who you are and should not carry a badge when setting such a poor example!! If anyone has questions email me
