A semi-truck hit an overhead sign Wednesday morning on eastbound I-80/I-94, slowing traffic to a standstill.

All lanes were blocked after the truck struck the sign structure, completely bringing it down just east of Ripley. After 6 a.m., one eastbound land was open, forcing a half-mile delay.  

After striking the signs, the semi veered off into a ditch, ripping off the vehicle's entire side panel.

No major injuries were reported.
