Tuesday morning accident on I64 sends truck driver to hospital

Illinois State Police District 19 troopers investigated a Tuesday morning traffic crash on Interstate 64 that sent a Granite City man to the hospital.

According to the preliminary crash report, 47 year old David Keough was traveling east in a 2007 white Freightliner pulling a trailer when he lost control of the vehicle just east of mile post 128 at 7:35 am.

Keough’s truck left the roadway and overturned in the median, and had to be removed from the scene by Rick’s Towing.  Keough was transported to an area hospital by the White County Ambulance Service.  Troopers on the scene were also assisted by IDOT personnel, and the Little Wabash Fire Department.

Keough was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, expired registration, overweight on registration, and failure to retain previous seven days of logs.
