This past Wednesday morning, a Champaign woman was injured in an accident with a semi-truck on Interstate 74.
According to the Illinois State Police, the 28-year old woman was traveling eastbound on the highway at around 7:35 A.M. When passing through a work zone, she noticed a semi-truck coming up behind her too fast. The woman swerved into the right lane to get out of the way of the speeding truck, but the tractor-trailer still managed to hit the left side of her SUV.
Both drivers were taken to the Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana for unspecified injuries. Since the accident, both have been released from the hospital. The driver of the semi-truck has been issued citations for speeding and driving while fatigued or ill.
