Kankakee County, IL – Traffic disruptions are expected to last for an extended period in rural Bourbonnais following a semi-truck accident. The Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed the truck, laden with scrap metal, veered off the road and into a ditch near the 4000 N and 5500 E Rd. intersection, between Bradley and Momence. 

The incident has led to significant lane blockages, with road closures anticipated to last around an hour for vehicle recovery and scrap metal removal. Detours are currently in effect at 5000 E and 4000 E.

The Sheriff’s Office has not released any information regarding potential injuries as emergency crews are still assessing the scene. The cause of the accident is under investigation, and authorities have not yet determined whether weather, road conditions, or other factors played a role. Commuters are urged to seek alternate routes as traffic is being rerouted to minimize congestion. The Sheriff’s Office stresses the importance of avoiding the area entirely if possible, to allow clear access for emergency and recovery vehicles. Updates will be provided as the situation evolves and more information becomes available.
