Police Reports

Illinois State Police

At approximately 10:01 a.m. on Jan. 3, the Illinois State Police reported a traffic crash with injuries occurred on northbound Interstate 39 near mile marker 49.

A white, 2018 Subaru Legacy driven by Imran Umar, 28, of Chicago was traveling south on I-39. Umar lost control of his vehicle as a result of slick road conditions. The vehicle traveled through the center median and entered the northbound lanes of I-39, where it struck the rear axles of a semitrailer being pulled by a white, 2015 Freightliner truck driven by Dennis Eucker, 61, of Janesville, Wis. The impact knocked the axles away from the semitrailer. 

Both drivers were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the accident was determined to be that Umar was driving too fast for conditions, and he was cited for improper lane usage.
