CHICAGO (CBS) — A person was killed and another person was ejected after a sports-utility vehicle crashed while traveling west on U.S. Route 30 toward northbound lanes on I-57 in south suburban Matteson Wednesday night, according to Illinois State Police.

The single-vehicle accident happened about 11:17 p.m., state police said, adding that the westbound ramp from U.S Route 30 heading toward I-57 remained closed early Thursday as investigators collected details.

Another person who had been ejected from the SUV was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
