Eastbound I-64 closed six hours Friday following truck crash 

 Illinois State Police say eastbound Interstate 64 in Wayne County was closed for about six hours Friday for cleanup and recovery following the crash of a semi.

Preliminary investigative details indicate 63-year-old Larry Vaughn of Louisville, Kentucky left the right side of the road, overcorrected and overturned onto I-64, and came to rest blocking both lanes of eastbound traffic.  Vaughn was airlifted to a regional hospital with serious injuries.

Vaughn was ticketed for improper lane usage.

The crash occurred at 2:16 Friday morning.
