SHARE Two hurt in Kankakee County crash involving IDOT truck, semi

A west suburban man was among two drivers injured in a crash involving a semi and an IDOT truck early Tuesday in Kankakee County.

The semi was southbound on I-57 about 4:50 a.m. when it crossed the median and crashed into the IDOT truck in the northbound lane near milepost 304, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

The IDOT driver, a 59-year-old man, had to be extricated from the truck and hospitalized, police said.

The driver of the semi, a 40-year-old Cicero man, was also taken to a hospital, police said. He was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

I-57 has reopened since the crash, police said.
