The driver of a tractor trailer is being treated at a local hospital after his truck flipped over Sunday afternoon on Southbound Interstate 55 around the Stevenson Drive exit.
An Illinois State Police report says the 16-year-old driver of a pickup truck entering the highway from the Stevenson Drive on ramp lost control of his vehicle and then was hit by the semi.
The tractor trailer truck overturned on its side, blocking traffic for several hours.
The driver of the tractor trailer was extracted by the Springfield Fire Department and taken to a local hospital for non life threatening injuries. Police say citations are pending.
