VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — State police say the 62-year old semi-truck driver who hit a bridge Monday night lost control of the rig, but they’re not sure how.

The accident happened on I-74, just east of Danville.

Authorities say the driver, from Iowa, veered into the median and hit a cable barrier before hitting the bridge support.

He had to be extricated and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
