A 54-year-old Chicago man is facing possible drunk driving charges after the U-Haul he was driving overturned Friday night in the northbound lanes of I-94.

Racine County Sheriff’s deputies were called at 10:55 p.m. Friday to I-94 just north of the Highway C overpass for a report of an overturned U-Haul. When they arrived, the truck was on its side blocking the right lane, and personal possessions were scattered across all lanes of traffic.

Rescue crews from Yorkville transported the driver to Wheaton Franciscan with non-life threatening injuries. After he was medically cleared, he was booked into the Racine County Jail with third offense operating while intoxicated.

All three lanes of traffic were blocked for a couple of hours while the scene was cleaned up.
