Semi Driver Injured in Semi Pick-up Truck Collision

On Friday at approximately 2:45 pm Ogle County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a two vehicle rollover accident at the intersection of Illinois Rte. 52 and Freeport Road just outside of Polo.

According to Ogle County Deputies it was determined that a pick-up being driven by 22 year old Jonathan Trogilo of Peoria was Northbound on Freeport Road and a tractor-trailer semi being driven by 57 year old Ronald Steger  of Epworth, IA., was westbound on Illinois Rte. 52.

Troglio was stopped at the stop sign but stated he did not observe the semi approaching and pulled into the intersection. Steger was unable to stop and the pick-up was struck. Both occupants of the pick-up were uninjured and refused medical transport at the scene.

Steger’s semi rolled onto its side and he was transported to CGH Hospital in Sterling for minor injuries sustained. Troglio was cited for failure to yield right of way at an intersection.
