Rollover crash on I-255


Emergency personnel responded to a rollover crash on westbound I-255 near the Fish Lake overpass by milepost 5.5 in Columbia about 6:50 p.m. Wednesday as a thunderstorm rolled through the area.

Illinois State Police said that a 2008 Ford Ranger driven by Terrance B. Sears, 18, of Lake St. Louis, Mo., was traveling in the middle lane when the truck swerved to avoid another vehicle driving into its lane. The truck lost control, drove off the roadway to the right, struck a light pole and rolled multiple times.

Sears, who refused medical attention, was cited for driving without a valid license.
