Tanker rolls and closes I294 3-20-12

Tim Olk spent most of Tuesday camped out in the southbound lanes of the Tri-State Tollway (I294). The Southtown Star had this report:

… an overturned tanker led to the closure of the southbound lanes between 95th and 127th streets. The lanes were closed from before noon until about 8 p.m., turning rush-hour traffic into a nightmare …

The tanker, which was carrying hydrochloric acid, turned over and blocked all three lanes of traffic after a vehicle made an illegal U-turn in its path at about 11:43 a.m. at 127th Street, Illinois State Police Trooper Michelle Kistulinec said.
