WAYNE COUNTY — A dump truck crashed into an overpass over Interstate 64 in Wayne County Wednesday morning.

The dump truck, driven by 52-year-old Michael E. Willie of Peoria, was westbound on 64 just east of milepost 103 when the truck struck the overpass for Wayne County 1200 East Road. The dump bed separated from the truck on impact and remained wedged under the overpass. Willie was cited for vehicle over height, no valid registration, and overweight on registration.

Bridge inspectors from IDOT are inspecting the damage to the overpass. Illinois State Police District 19 was assisted at the crash scene by an ISP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer, IDOT, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department, Wayne City Fire Department, and Rick’s Towing Service.
