It happened around 12 a.m. Friday on I-57 northbound at mile marker 12.

Illinois State Police say a semi driven by Jose Hernandez, 63, of Laredo, Texas, left the interstate and hit an embankment on the east side of the road. The crash caused the trailer to flip on its side, partially blocking one lane of traffic.

Hernandez was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He has been cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and improper lane usage.

Illinois State Police, the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and Pulaski County EMS responded to the crash.
