According to Illinois State Patrol, a semi truck has driven off an I-74 overpass in Orion and fallen down to the 'Orion Blacktop' underneath -- otherwise known as County Road 32.
The driver has been airlifted to a hospital in Peoria.
Traffic is running smoothly on I-74, but the county road underneath has been closed until further notice. Illinois State Patrol tells Local 4 News there is no estimate as to when that trailer will be removed.
As of 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, emergency crews were cutting the trailer open to first remove the contents before moving the semi.
