Preliminary details indicate the driver was traveling north when the left front steer tire blew causing the vehicle to skid off the roadway towards the left ditch and overturning, before landing upright, than rolling over again before coming to a rest on the driver’s side.
While the name of the driver has not been released, authorities have identified the driver as a 54 year old male from Illinois. Although he was wearing a seatbelt, he had to be extricated due to the truck trapping him inside. He was then transported by AirLife to an area hospital with injuries.
