CHICAGO (STMW) — Loose concrete fell off an overpass and struck a vehicle westbound on the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) Tuesday afternoon in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

Rescue crews responded to the crash about 2:20 p.m. in the westbound lanes of I-290 near the Kostner Avenue overpass, according to Illinois State Police.

Loose concrete apparently fell from the overpass and struck one vehicle, ISP said.
