Portions of the southbound lanes of the Dan Ryan Expressway around 79th Street were closed for nearly 11 hours after a rollover crash early Saturday involving a tanker truck.

The Illinois State Police said no one was hurt when the truck rolled over around 5:30 a.m., apparently due to slick road surfaces.

The left lane was reopened around 8 a.m., but other lanes remained closed until about 4 p.m.
