Semi Transporting Ramen Noodles Overturns Near Morton

Illinois State Police

A semi tractor-trailer transporting a load of ramen noodles overturned Wednesday night near Morton.

The Illinois State Police said Abdikihar Farah, 60, of Columbus, Ohio, was taking the ramp from northbound Interstate 155 to westbound Interstate 74 around 8:30 p.m. when he lost control and rolled the truck.

The vehicle left the road and tipped onto its side. Farah was extricated from the vehicle and taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria with non life-threatening injuries.

All debris was cleared shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday.

Farah was cited for driving too fast for conditions.
