Semi-trucks turn over due to high winds near Rochelle

High Winds from a thunderstorm yesterday morning caused 5 semi-trucks to turn over on their sides near Rochelle.

The storm hit Rochelle at around 6:45. The trucks were traveling on I-39 just north of Route 38 and South
of I-88, when they turned over.

Fortunately, none of the drivers or passengers in the semi's suffered life threatening injuries. None of the semi-trucks were transporting any hazardous materials.

Traffic was backed up for several hours in the south bound lane of I-39 and near the exit for I-88 due to the accidents.
