The driver of a semi truck is hospitalized with serious injuries after his rig overturned on an suburban expressway ramp Wednesday afternoon.

The injured driver was taken to a hospital by helicopter after the crash.

It happened on a ramp connecting the Eisenhower Expressway to northbound Route 83 in DuPage County.

The 73-year-old driver had to be pulled from the wreckage.

The closure from York Road to Route 83 led to a major backup on outbound Eisenhower Expressway.
