No injuries reported on I-80 incidents east of La Salle

Craig Sterrett
News Editor

La Salle firefighters had three calls in a short period of time late Friday afternoon, but no injuries were reported.

Fire chief Andy Bacidore said a truck pulling a trailer that was carrying a small, beat-up old truck collided with a semi, and the small trailer and truck tipped over. Firefighters and emergency medical technicians checked on the occupants and did not need to transport anyone to a hospital because of injury.

As they were departing that scene on westbound Interstate 80 between Route 178 and Interstate 39, they were called to eastbound Interstate 80, where one car had struck the rear of another and then the front of the rear car caught fire. Bacidore said there were no injuries in that accident; both accidents resulted in significant traffic backups on Interstate 80.

While some firefighters were on Interstate 80, another La Salle crew was called to a building at Fourth and Hennepin streets. That turned out to be a faulty alarm.
