CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- Traffic was slow for drivers on I-74 today. State police say a semi overturned last night at Mile Marker 187 between St. Joseph and Urbana in eastbound lanes. 
Officials say the driver swerved to avoid a deer, over-corrected and flipped. He sustained minor injuries. It took crews all day to remove the load.
