Police investigating semi-trailer rollover in Elmhurst

ELMHURST – Illinois State Police are still investigating what caused a semi-trailer to roll over Monday afternoon in the northbound Route 83 ramp to eastbound Interstate 290.

Elmhurst firefighters responded to the scene about 2 p.m. after the trailer that was carrying 38,000 pounds of trail mix rolled over. The ramp remained closed to traffic for about 3.5 hours, re-opening about 5:30 p.m., police said. The trail mix cargo stayed contained.

The driver of the truck was taken to a hospital for minor injuries, said Elmhurst Fire Chief Jeff Bacidore.

No other vehicles were involved, and no charges have been filed, said Illinois State Trooper Douglas Yorke.

"There were no roadway malfunctions," he said.
