We would like to commend the dispatchers and first responders for their quick response and handling the situation! Multiple agencies assisted and everyone pulled together to work as a huge team. It was nice to work with everyone. We appreciate all of you and what you do for our community!

We want to thank Livin' It Up Transportation for their quick response early this morning!
Around 3 a.m. on I57 southbound just south of I70, near the south side of Effingham, Illinois State Police District 12 Troopers responded to a transportation bus full of passengers that had mechanical issues with the air conditioning system. While the driver was trying to open windows to cool the passengers, the bus rolled into the ditch and received some minor damage.
Within 30 minutes of the our dispatcher making the call asking them to help get the passengers quickly and safely off the roadway, two buses from Livin' It Up Transportation Company had arrived!
We are so proud to be part of a community of people that take the time in the wee hours of the morning to answer the call and help some weary travelers out!
