Details on the accident, its causes, and accident injuries appear limited at this time.
According to Illinois State Police (ISP) the accident happened in a construction zone on Route 154 at Hitt Road at approximately 10:40 a.m.
The ISP says that the accident was a “chain-reaction” crash, in which a truck driven by Gary Lahmann of Farmington, Missouri “rear-ended” a motorcycle, which in turn hit a truck ahead of it.
The motorcyclist, identified as Timothy Wisneski of Nashville, fell to the ground during the course of the accident.
All three drivers were taken to Marshal Browning Hospital in DuQuion for treatment of accident injuries.
