Trucker Injured in Semi Accident on I-70 in Clark County, IL

Clark County, IL -- February 21, 2023, a truck driver was injured after an accident where two trucks crashed along I-70.

Investigators said that the incident happened near mile marker 150 outside of Marshall at around 8:19 p.m. Details right now say only that the collision occurred as a semi-truck came off the shoulder "too closely in front of a second semi."

As a result, the second semi crashed into the rear-end of the semi merging from the shoulder. That second truck driver was taken to the hospital with reportedly minor injuries. No other injuries were reported. I hope that's at least true that injuries here were only minor, considering how deadly it can be to merge in front of traffic as was described here. However, it's still important to take these situations seriously.

Just recently, I handled a crash involving two commercial vehicles where a man's "minor" injuries turned out to be a spinal injury that became significantly worse less than a week after the crash. What initial reports called "minor" ended up needing surgery and months of struggle with the insurance company. We got him the help he needed, but it was an arduous process I wouldn't wish upon anyone. Hopefully the reports here prove to be accurate in the long run.
