A Washington state truck driver escaped with minor injuries when his semi overturned late Monday afternoon on Illinois 57 at the I-172 on ramp.

Adams County Sheriff’s deputies say 25-year-old Darko Kocev of Spokane told them he was going too fast as he tried to merge over to the ramp.

Deputies ticketed Kocev for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
