Truck driver ticketed in Rochelle tanker accident

Rochelle police have ticketed a truck driver after his semi-tanker crashed last Friday afternoon.

Reports indicate that 29-year old Steven Mills of Minooka was traveling southbound on Illinois 251 and was turning left onto the eastbound ramp for I-88. Mills lost control of the tanker as it rolled on it's side in the south ditch.

The tanker was filled with 6,000 gallons of diesel fuel.

It took fire department personnel around 45 minutes to extricate Mills from the cab area before he was flown from the scene by emergency helicopter to a Rockford hospital with head and internal injuries.

Mills received a citation for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The eastbound ramp for I-88 was closed for around 4 hours Friday following the accident.
