Two injured after semi-truck crashes in I-255 work zone

DUPO, Il. - Both Illinois State Police and the Illinois Department of Transportation were at a crash that closed northbound I-255 near the Dupo (mile marker 9) exit.

A semi-truck traveling northbound crashed into an attenuator truck in a work zone at around 9:30am. That truck was moving slowly to protect the workers who are repaving the shoulders to install rumble strips.

The only people injured in this accident were the drivers of the attenuator truck and a water tank truck. Their injuries are non-life threatening. But, they are being treated at the hospital.

The driver of the semi truck tells Illinois State Police that he did not see the workers in front of him.

Lanes of northbound and southbound I-255 are now open.  Crews are working to clear the crash.
