Fatal Crash Early Monday on I-57

Jul 2, 2018

A single car crash left one person dead and another injured early this morning on Interstate 57 in Williamson County, near milepost 55.

Southern Illinoisans are asking a lot of questions about an uptick in crashes along Interstate 57 and Highway 13. What’s causing them? How can they be prevented?


Illinois State Police say one person is dead following a traffic crash involving 3-semis on Interstate 57.

Troopers say at around 9 a.m. Thursday in the south bound lanes at Mile Post 82, say two of the semis were heading south approaching slowed traffic due to crews working on an overturned vehicle at Mile Post 79.

One lane of Interstate 57 northbound in Williamson County remains closed Friday morning, as crews will get back to work today clearing an accident scene from earlier this week.
