ROCK ISLAND A truck driver was not injured when the apple-loaded semi he was driving overturned on Highway 28 early this morning.
State Department of Transportation crews were still out diverting traffic around the crash site this morning, about two miles south of Rock Island, said State Patrol Lt. Kandi Patrick. The trucking company was also making arrangements to load the apples onto another truck, she said.
She said the trooper’s report is not yet complete, so she did not have the driver’s name or the name of the trucking company.
Troopers were called to the scene shortly before 1 a.m., where the semi was overturned on the passenger side, partly blocking the westbound lane, she said.
It’s unknown at this time whether the accident was weather-related, although, “Obviously, the roads are covered with snow and ice,” Patrick said.
