Crash, Downed Power Line Shut Down I-190 And Limit Access To O'Hare

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A downed power line following a crash on the Kennedy Expressway limited access to O'Hare International Airport Monday evening.

At 4:46 p.m., Illinois State Police were called to the eastbound Kennedy – I-190 in that area – near River Road for a crash.

One person was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

All lanes of I-190 were closed following the crash due to a downed power line on the roadway, state police said. All lanes reopened later Monday night.

Traffic was diverted to the westbound Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) during the closure.

ComEd said the power line that came down did not belong to them and there were no outages involved with it.
