An IDOT truck driver swerved to avoid an erratic driver and rolled over on the Bishop Ford, shutting down the expressway for about two hours early Friday.

Another driver made a sudden lane change in front of the southbound truck about 12:20 a.m. on the I-94 ramp to 103rd Street, an Illinois State Police spokesperson said.

The truck driver veered left and lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a light pole.

The truck then turned back onto the roadway and rolled over, state police said. Its driver was taken to a hospital for minor injuries.

The other driver continued without stopping, state police said.
