ISP Trucker rolls rig on I 80 ramp, loses steel coil

A Chicago trucker was injured Tuesday after rolling his semi on I-80 and losing the steel coil he was hauling, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 1:52 p.m. Adil Raziev, 26, was entering eastbound I-80 from southbound Broadway when he “took the curve on the ramp too fast.” Police said that Raziev’s rig overturned and that the 44,780-pound steel coil on his flatbed trailer broke free.

The coil knocked a chunk out of the concrete barrier wall.

Raziev was transported to Northlake Methodist Hospital in Gary with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

The ramp was closed to upright the semi and trailer and recover the steel coil, which was being delivered to an unspecified company in Duneland.
