UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The southbound lanes of Interstate 57 in Union County, Illinois had to be shut down for a while to give crews the space they needed to clean up an overturned semi truck and trailer.
The crash happened near milepost 33 around 1:15 a.m., Wednesday, July 19.
Illinois State Police investigators said the driver, 55-year-old Michael Garwood, swerved to avoid hitting some deer that had wandered onto the Interstate.
That's when the truck ended up overturned in the median.
Garwood was not hurt.
