It took nearly four hours for crews to clear the debris and reopen southbound Interstate 55 at Sangamon Avenue after a crash involving a fire truck.
The rig from the Harrisburg Fire Department was traveling north on the interstate, headed to Peoria for repairs, when a tire blew.
That sent the truck into the median and through concrete barriers on the other side, causing it to overturn in the southbound lanes.
Traffic had to be diverted at Sangamon Avenue, causing massive backups until the scene was cleared. No one was hurt.
