We told you during the Morning Show on Tuesday about an accident north out of Effingham that blocked traffic on the interstate for a time.

Here are the details on the crash:

State police say a rig driven by 23-year-old Kristijan Georgievski of Justice, Illinois was on the ramp leading from eastbound I-70 to northbound I-57 just before 7:30am.  Georgievski lost control of the semi, which ran off the roadway and overturned, coming to a stop upright in a jackknifed position, partially blocking the roadway.

Georgievski was injured and was taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for examination.  He was cited for driving while fatigued and falsifying entries in his logbook.
