WEST CHICAGO – The driver of a semitrailer was cited for turning without a signal in a rollover crash that occurred shortly before noon Wednesday on Route 64, west of Powis Road, police said.

The truck, a 2001 Freightliner, was traveling north on Powis Road and was stopped at North Avenue waiting to turn right, according to police reports. 

The driver, a 23-year-old man from Wisconsin, told police he never saw the second vehicle, a 2006 Hummer H3 driven by a 52-year-old man from South Barrington, until he was already turning and could not avoid hitting it, police said.

The driver of the Hummer was taken to Central DuPage Hospital for observation, police said.

West Chicago police would not name the drivers involved in the crash.

Although the Hummer rolled over, emergency responders did not have to extricate the driver because the car door opened and he was able to get out, West Chicago Deputy Fire Chief Dennis Keef said.
