Two people were hospitalized, one of them with serious injuries, after a rollover crash that shut down multiple lanes of Interstate 94 near Deerfield Sunday evening.
The Illinois State Police and Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Protection District responded around 9:53 p.m. Sunday to Interstate 94 just south of Deerfield Road in Deerfield for a vehicle crash with injuries.
Illinois State Police District 15 troopers arrived to find a two-vehicle crash with one of the vehicles rolled over in the westbound lanes of the Tri-State Tollway.
Troopers and IDOT Emergency Traffic Patrol closed five of the six westbound lanes for approximately three hours.
A preliminary investigation shows a vehicle was traveling westbound near milepost 24.5 when it stopped in lane 4 for an unknown reason, according to Illinois State Police Trooper Genelle Jones.
A second vehicle traveling behind it was unable to stop in time and sideswiped the first vehicle, causing the second vehicle to roll over, Jones said.
Paramedics transported one of the drivers to a local hospital in serious but non-life-threatening condition.
A second driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, Jones said. No one else was injured.
No additional information was released and the incident remains under investigation by the Illinois State Police.
