CHICAGO (CBS)– One person died and an Illinois State trooper was injured in a multiple vehicle crash on the I-57.
Now that the sun is up we can see more of this crash investigation blocking IB I-57 before the Cal-Sag. Police still forcing everyone off at Sibley/147th. It’s solid starting at 159th. Get on at 127th to avoid the delay. pic.twitter.com/7udgi7mbI8
