(KTVI) – An overnight accident blocked a ramp to the Poplar Street Bridge for hours.  Just before midnight, a semi heading north on Interstate 55 lost the rear wheels of its trailer as it approached the bridge.

The trailer slid onto the ramp and blocked the entrance.  Crews had to unload the trailer’s cargo before it could be removed.  No one was injured.
