      ISP investigates overturned tractor-trailer on I-72

      Illinois State Police responded to a semi crash near the Interstate 72 and 172 exit near Hull.

      Driver Micheal Paul Overkamp, 43, of New Florence, Missouri was eastbound on I-72 at milepost 4 at the northbound interchange at I-172 and as the truck rounded the curve, the towed modular-style home separated from the trailer frame and overturned on the left side of the roadway. The overturned load partially blocked the roadway.

      The truck tractor unit was not damaged, however, police said the trailer frame and the piece of modular home sustained moderate to severe damage.

      Overkamp was ticketed for failure to reduce speed.
