WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Traffic was temporarily blocked Saturday on I-57 in Williamson County, Illinois after a semi truck hit another.

According to Illinois State Police, Rayaleh Hassan, 30, of Denver, Colorado, was traveling south on I-57 near mile marker 51.5 through a construction zone, while it was raining, at around 9:38 a.m.

Hassan apparently swerved to the left to avoid slowly moving traffic, and then over corrected swerving back to the right, striking a semi truck driven by George Guerrero, 46, of Edinburg, Texas, who was traveling in front of Hassan.

Hassan's truck partially overturned and his trailer completely overturned, completely blocking southbound traffic for more than two hours.

Hassan was cited for driving too fast for conditions.

Neither driver was injured.
