Illinois State Troupers responded to a single vehicle crash involving a semi truck trailer early Monday morning.

At around 5 a.m. on April 18, a semi trailer was found overturned on Illinois Route 40 near Park School Road. 

The driver of the truck, Dwayne C. Collins, 50, of French Village, MO, was treated for minor injuries on the scene and released.

Illinois State Police say Collins was issued a citation for driving too fast for conditions, which possibly led to the accident.

The semi truck was transporting dry goods, but a section of IL 40 was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the crash site.
