FAIRMONT CITY, IL (KTVI) -  A tractor trailer is stuck in a swamp at I-55/70 near Route 111.  The driver went off of the roadway and is facing in the opposite direction.  It is unclear if the driver crossed over the median.  Bommarito Automotive Group SkyFOX captured the footage.

This happened around 8:10 p.m. Thursday night. The driver is safe.

Crews made several attempts to remove the vehicle at that time.  They broke various cables and had to return Friday morning.

The 18-wheeler was removed by three men using large trucks.

Surprisingly, the truck has minor damage. Ironically, it was carrying a load of winches.
