A collision between a semi and a pickup truck caused the semi to overturn on Interstate 55 at the Stevenson Drive exit Sunday afternoon, closing the southbound lanes there for several hours.
State police say the truck... driven by a 16-year-old boy... skidded on the wet pavement while attempting to exit the interstate at Stevenson. The semi clipped the truck and then overturned, blocking the southbound lanes.
The driver of the semi had to be extricated and was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the pickup and a 19-year-old passenger, both from Rochester, were apparently uninjured.
State police say the accident resulted in closure of the highway for an extended period in order to clear the scene. Citations are pending.
