Semi Jackknifes on I-65 in Jasper County – Wed. Apr. 4th

Jasper County-A jack-knife semi closed I-65 north bound for two hours this morning at the 207 mile marker (this is two miles north of the Remington/Rensselaer exit) injuring the driver.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper William Stancy revealed at approximately 5:35 a.m., this Wednesday, April 4, 2018, morning, Amandi N. Chioke (male), 45 of Round Lake, Illinois was driving a 2008 Volvo semi pulling a box trailer, owned by Saia Motor Freight Line Incorporated out of Houma, Iowa when he lost control.  Chioke was in the right lane north bound and road conditions were slick/icy when he jack-knifed.  The semi went off the roadway crashed into the center median barrier cable, which caused extensive damage to the tractor and approximately fifty yards of the median cable barrier.

The Volvo then traveled back onto north bound I-65 and the tractor went into the east side ditch and the trailer blocked both lanes of I-65 north bound at the above location.  The trailer was empty at the time of the crash.

Chioke was wearing his seat belt and was taken to Jasper County Hospital in Rensselaer with non-life threatening injuries. 

All lanes north bound were reopened at approximately 7:40 a.m.

Assisting: Master Troopers Martin Benner and Fred Trammel, Sergeant Kathy Boissy, Trooper William Carlson and Village Motors
