No injuries were reported after high winds reportedly caused a semi-truck to rollover on Interstate 94 near Wadsworth on Saturday.

The Illinois State Police responded around 8:54 p.m. Saturday to Interstate 94 near milepost 1.5 for a report of a single-vehicle crash.

Illinois State Police Trooper Jayme Bufford said that a preliminary investigation showed the semi-truck was traveling on the ramp from Edwards Road.

As the semi-truck began merging onto eastbound Interstate 94 from the ramp, it rolled over onto its driver’s side.
