Cement truck crash

News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A cement truck driver only suffered non-life-threatening injuries when his rig rolled, but he received two citations for the accident. 29-year old Jeffrey Shaffer, of Farmer City, was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions and failing to wear a seat belt.

Authorities say Shaffer was driving the cement truck on the ramp from I-74 westbound to I-57 southbound when the rig ran off the road, overturned and came to rest in the grass median. The ramp was closed for several hours while crews towed the truck.
