    It was on the ramp from 74 east to 55 south on the north side of Bloomington....layed over on the east side of the ramp into the radius bordering southbound 55 south .

    More than likely the driver took the curve too fast,can’t remember if it’s a 50 mph curve or higher/lower. Probably thought he could hammer down into it.

    I’ve been around that area many a time,in particular going north or south along I-39,less than 1/2 mile north of that junction. Some of those curves are deceptive,especially when you’re joining I-55 southbound.
    Edit: I did a Google Street View-it’s a high speed ramp but something doesn’t add up.
