I-55 Reopened After Fire Truck Rollover
A fire truck from Harrisburg on its way to Peoria for maintenance rolled over on I-55 in Springfield this afternoon.
Authorities say the truck was in the left lane heading north when one of its tires blew. The truck went off the roadway, plowed through a concrete median, and ended up in the southbound lanes.
Police say the driver was the only person in the vehicle. He was shaken up, but uninjured.
The southbound lanes of I-55 were closed for several hours while the accident was cleaned up. The highway reopened around 4 p.m.
