A man was injured and the northbound and southbound ramps from the Stevenson Expressway to La Grange Road were temporarily closed Thursday afternoon after a semi truck rolled over.

About 1:40 p.m., the truck was on the ramp from northbound I-55 to southbound La Grange Road when the driver lost control and the truck rolled over, according to Illinois State Police.

The driver, a 28-year-old man, was taken with minor injuries to Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital in La Grange, police said.

Both ramps from La Grange Road to northbound and southbound I-55 were temporarily closed, as was southbound La Grange Road, police said. All lanes were reopened shortly after 5 p.m.
