A 27-year-old man from Vernon Hills died after a possible wrong-way driving crash on Interstate 90 near O’Hare Airport in Chicago Wednesday morning.

The Illinois State Police and Chicago Fire Department responded around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday to Interstate 90 at Cumberland Avenue in Chicago for a vehicle crash with injuries.

A spokesperson for the Illinois State Police (ISP) said the crash involved two vehicles and one person was killed.

Minutes before the crash, numerous motorists called 911 to report a car driving the wrong way on Interstate 90, according to police radio traffic.

The vehicle was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes beginning from at least Arlington Heights Road heading toward Chicago.

State troopers responding to the area came upon the two-vehicle crash, which occurred just east of Cumberland Avenue in the northbound lanes of Interstate 90 on the left shoulder.

Troopers and paramedics reported one of the drivers was dead. The other driver was reported to be conscious at the scene.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the deceased victim as Quinn Anthony Fraboni, 27, of Vernon Hills.

The ISP spokesperson would not confirm whether the wrong-way driver was involved in the crash. “The investigation is open and ongoing. There is no further information available at this time.”

All lanes of northbound Interstate 90 were shut down and traffic was diverted off to the local lanes at Canfield Avenue.

The interstate was reopened around 10:30 a.m.
