JEFFERSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - A Nashville man was injured when the semi he was driving overturned on Interstate 64 Friday, January 10 at 5:52 p.m.
According to Illinois State Police, Myrus R. Smith, 23, was driving a 2011 Freightliner truck tractor east on I-64 near mile post 73 in Jefferson County when he said he missed his turn to go onto I-57 South and tried to take the I-57 North ramp at the last minute.
Police say this caused the truck tractor-semi combination to overturn.
It came to a rest on the passenger side, blocking the ramp from I-64 Eastbound to I-57 Northbound.
Smith was taken to a Mount Vernon hospital by ambulance. He was cited for improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed.
