A semi-truck trying to make a right turn onto southbound Asbury Avenue from eastbound Emerson Street in Evanston this morning about 10:15 a.m. ended up putting the squeeze on a car at the intersection.

Initial reports were that there were injuries in the incident, but it appears they were not serious enough to have anyone taken to the hospital.


Update 4:42 p.m.: Police now say nobody was actually injured in the accident and that the driver of the truck had signaled to make the turn and the driver of the car, which was trying to pass the truck on the right, was cited for improper lane usage.
