Two semis crash spill hundreds of wine bottles on freeway in Chicago

Two semi-trucks crashed on the inbound lanes of the Bishop Ford Freeway on the Far South Side, Chicago at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, August 6, scattered hundreds of bottles of wine on a freeway.

The crash occurred along a stretch of Interstate 94 near 130th Street.

The trailer of one of the trucks carrying 40,000 pounds of bottles of wine spilled open. About one-quarter of the load spilled onto the roadway, IDOT minutemen on the scene said, according to WLS-TV.

Illinois State Police said that one person had minor injuries as a result of the crash.

The two right lanes of Bishop Ford remain closed as crews worked to clear the trucks and the spilled wine, police said.
