1 injured, 1 charged after crash on I-57 in Williamson Co.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Illinois State Police responded to a crash on Interstate 57 northbound in Williamson County on Monday, Nov. 17 at 7:42 a.m.

Police say the preliminary investigation shows that a white 2007 Chevrolet pick-up driven by a 27-year-old man from Sikeston, Mo., was going northbound on I-57 near milepost 51.

They say a blue 2006 Chevy pick-up was off the road and down in a tree-line. There was no one in the truck.

Police say a black 1994 tow truck was parked on the right hand shoulder of the interstate and had a cable from the truck attached to the blue truck.

They say the driver of the tow truck, a 37-year-old man from Marion, Ill., was underneath the blue truck trying to secure the chain and cable so he could pull the truck back on the road.

As the white truck was approaching the area, police say the driver lost control on the icy road. It went off the road and hit the blue truck while the tow truck driver was still underneath it.

The tow truck driver was airlifted to an area hospital with major injuries.

The driver of the white truck was uninjured and police say he was charged with driving too fast for conditions.
