Car drives through fresh road oil in St. Joseph


ST. JOESPH, Ill. (WAND) - A photo of a driver who ignored road closed signs and drove through fresh road oil is gaining traction on social media.

It happened on County Road 1400 N, south of St. Joseph. Illiana Construction says they were applying road oil for chipping roads. 

They say it's up to St. Joseph Township if the driver will have to pay for the damage. But the company says this sort of thing happens more often than people think, citing several incidents each summer.
