Another roll-over accident occurred just before 2 p.m. this afternoon. Illinois State Police say the driver was coming from Route 2 onto U.S. 20 West, when she hit a slick part of the pavement and rolled her truck. She ended up making it out of the crash OK, however, her vehicle is considered totaled.
