Trailer carrying 38,000 pounds of trail mix crashes in Elmhurst
A tractor-trailer carrying 38,000 pounds of trail mix rolled over Monday, closing the Route 83 ramp to eastbound I-290 in Elmhurst for about 3½ hours, police said.
The crash happened shortly before 2 p.m., according to Illinois State Police Sgt. Darren Love, who said the load of trail mix "stayed contained" in the trailer during the accident.
Love said a man driving the tractor-trailer was taken to a hospital as a precaution. No charges had been filed, and the crash remained under investigation, he said.
The truck was pulling onto 1-290 from a ramp on northbound Route 83 when the accident occurred, police said. The ramp was closed to traffic until 5:30 p.m. Elmhurst firefighters assisted at the scene.
Further details were not immediately available.
