Jerry D. Donaldson, 48, was eastbound on Illinois 33 just east of County Road 200E about 2:56 a.m. when his 2001 blue Chevrolet truck ran off the right side of the roadway, ISP reported. Donaldson overcorrected, according to the preliminary investigation, and his truck came back onto the roadway, causing the vehicle to overturn.
