Publish Date: 2023, 06, 28

TOLONO, IL – Two people were hospitalized on Tuesday afternoon after a semi truck collided with a passenger vehicle on I-57 south of Champaign.

According to the News-Gazette, the collision occurred between Monticello Road and the town of Pesotum at about 12:30 p.m.

Troopers say the semi-truck was heading south when its driver attempted to change lanes and collided with a passenger vehicle. The vehicle then skidded off the roadway and overturned.

Both occupants of the passenger vehicle were transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The truck’s driver declined medical treatment at the scene.

When truck drivers don’t check their blind spots before changing lanes, the consequences can be devastating for anyone unlucky enough to be in their path.
