Illinois State Police said a vehicle was heading north on Interstate 55 near Central Avenue around 8:45 a.m., at a high rate of speed, when it hit another vehicle, before veering into the ditch on the left side of the expressway, going airborne, and flipping over several times in the southbound lanes, where it hit another vehicle head-on.
The driver of the first and third vehicles were taken to the hospital with injuries.
All northbound lanes of the Stevenson Expressway were closed at Central Avenue after the crash. Those lanes reopened at about 2:30 p.m., police said.
