Ethanol truck causes traffic delays in Lemont

Maps

One truck driver was ticketed and traffic was snarled for a few hours after a truck carrying ethanol failed to make a turn at 127th and High Road and tipped over in Lemont Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The driver’s name and charges were not available from the Illinois State Police.

There were no injuries and no leakage, but emergency crews had to take high risk precautions in flipping the truck back over, Lemont Police Chief Kevin Shaughnessy said.

Traffic was cleared by 4 p.m.

The truck was en route to a delivery, and was westbound on 127th Street and tried to turn onto southbound High Road, when it turned over, the chief said.
