I-55 Crash Closes Southbound Lanes Near Joliet

JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) — A two-vehicle crash closed the southbound lanes of the Stevenson Expressway near southwest suburban Joliet before rush hour early Thursday.

No one was injured when two vehicles crashed about 5:55 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-55 near Black Road, Illinois State Police Sergeant Jeff Lisk said.
