Breaking: Semi trailer takes out utility pole, closes part of Plank Road in Sycamore

December 15, 2018 GMT

SYCAMORE – An overturned double-wide semi-trailer lay across Plank Road between Moose Range and Lukens Roads, closing the roadway Saturday morning.

A DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was blocking the passage at the intersection of Plank and Lukens roads, said the trailer slid off the south side of the road around 7 a.m. and took out a utility pole. About 8:30 a.m., the road was still closed, as officers awaited ComEd. Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan said the department will release more details on when the road might open, as soon as they’re available.

While the detour – Whipple Road just about a quarter-mile to the north of Plank Road – is nearby, traffic – westbound, particularly – was starting to bottleneck about 8:30 a.m.

No injuries were reported. This story will be updated.
