18-wheeler comes within inches of Elgin nursing home

There were some scary moments Wednesday morning for residents of an Elgin nursing home. The driver of an 18-wheeler was traveling down Highway 290 this morning when he lost control of his big rig in front of the Elgin Golden Years Retirement Community.

An employee of the center says all of the residents were startled, but unhurt. Residents were moved to a different hall for a short period of time as a precaution but everything is back to normal.

No word on what caused the driver to lose control.
