Entry Description

Lake County-An early morning bus roll over resulted in the driver being extricated and going to the hospital and the north bound I-65 left lane to be closed for over two hours.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Brandon Bohling revealed that at approximately 1:22 a.m., this Tuesday, October 15, 2013, morning, a 1999 Prevost (15+) passenger bus, owned by North American Charter Lines out of Bolingbrook, Illinois, was north bound on I-65 in the right lane at the 238 mile marker (this is two miles south of the Lowell exit) when the bus went off the road. The bus, driven by Dwane Jackson, 41 of Chicago, Illinois, ran off the left side of the interstate and began to roll over onto its passenger side. There were NO passengers on the bus.

The bus came to rest on the passenger side, facing northwest, against the center strand barrier cable. Jackson had to be extricated out of the bus and was taken to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Crown Point with non-life threatening injuries to his shoulder and head. Jackson stated he was driving in the right lane and then woke up in a ditch and that he had probably fell asleep.

The left lane was closed in this area for over two hours for extricating and transporting of Jackson, up-righting and towing of the bus.

Jackson was cited for failure to retain his previous 7 days log and for unsafe lane movement.

Assisting: Trooper Brandon Henderson, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Sergeant Wanda Clay and Lowell Fire and EMS
