A semi-trailer truck jackknifed on the Tri-State Tollway, snarling northbound traffic during Monday’s morning commute.
The semi jackknifed across the Tristate Tollway just north of Grand Avenue about 6:45 a.m., according to Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Carlita Joe.
One northbound lane had been reopened to traffic as of 7:40 a.m. No injuries have been reported.
Joe said the semi is carrying plastic beads, which have spilled onto the Tri-State. State troopers and the Chicago Fire Department are on the scene.
