The crash happened at the onramp to I-5 northbound from South Dearborn Street and was reported by the trooper at 10:44 a.m.
Speed and impairment were cited as factors in the crash.
South Dearborn Street was closed down as authorities worked to clear the scene. A photo shared by Trooper Johnson shows the front end of the dump truck on its side along the ramp, and what appears to be dirt spilled out onto the roadway.
No injuries were reported.
