2 head to hospital after crash on Interstate 70

When a large truck is on the road, your hope is that the driver is skilled enough to handle it. You know that the United States requires a commercial license for most large vehicles, so it's expected that the driver knows the laws and how to get from one place to another safely.

Unfortunately, that was not the case in this collision in Illinois. The crash, which happened on Interstate 70, resulted in two people being taken to the hospital and one driver being ticketed.

The Illinois State Police (ISP) indicated that the collision happened when the driver of the first truck involved overturned his vehicle. Another truck traveling in the same direction couldn't stop in time and hit the debris from the overturned vehicle. A third tractor-trailer also become involved when the driver struck the first overturned vehicle.

The driver of the overturned semi was a driver from Guatemala who reportedly does not have a commercial driver's license. The man also failed to produce a logbook or medical certificate. He was issued citations for improper lane usage as well as failing to comply with an out-of-service order.

The drivers of the other two vehicles were taken to the hospital in Terre Haute for the treatment of their injuries.

Hit by a driver without a CDL?

If you're hit by a driver who does not have a commercial driver's license or other appropriate paperwork, that's serious. Your attorney can work with you to seek compensation and to make sure that person is held accountable for their actions. They've put themselves and others in serious danger with their actions and face great liability as a result.
