GEORGIA TRUCK DRIVER NOT HURT IN SEMI ROLLOVER CRASH ON SB I-57 IN BENTON TUESDAY

BENTON, IL — A truck driver from Atlanta, Georgia was not injured in a semi rollover crash around 10:15 Tuesday morning on southbound I-57 just south of the Benton exit.

According to Illinois State Police, 46-year-old Akeam Beach was driving south on I-57 near milepost 70.5 when he said a semi-trailer combination was traveling in the left lane of traffic and began drifting into Beach’s lane. Beach moved over onto the shoulder portion of the road to avoid being struck by the drifting vehicle. Beach lost control striking a guardrail causing the semi to overturn in the right ditch. Beach was not injured.

The right lane of I-57 was shut down for some time so the semi could be removed.
