- Some 350 cases of liquor were spilled on the North-South Tollway (I-355) in the northwest suburbs Wednesday morning when a semi and a box truck collided.
The two drivers suffered only minor injuries in the crash but the mess took about 90 minutes to clean up, according to Illinois State Police.
About 6:50 a.m., a semi crashed into a box truck in the southbound lanes of I-355 near I-290, according to ISP Tollway District Master Sgt. Tim Zych. The accident happened in a construction zone.
The box truck rolled on its side, spilling its load of about 350 cases of liquor, Zych said. The contents were a "mixed load of boxes of hard liquor," he said.
We were wondering why our local watering hole doubled the prices of the shots and the tropical drinks with the umbrellas in them. This also explains the weeping heard behind the Watch Commander's closed door today.
