Posted:

HODGKINS, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois State Police says a semitrailer carrying 39,000 pounds of carrots overturned on a highway exit in the southwest suburbs.

State Police says a Wisconsin man was driving his truck too fast at about 4 p.m. Monday when it overturned onto the left ditch just past the I-PASS tollbooth from 75th street toward northbound Interstate 294 in Hodgkins. The driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

WLS-TV reports that the overturned truck blocked two lanes of traffic.
