1 killed, 4 hurt in Tri-State Tollway crash


One man was killed and four people were injured Sunday morning when three vehicles crashed on the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) in Lake County.

The crash happened about 6:45 a.m. and involved three vehicles — a tow truck, a van and 4-door car, according to an Illinois State Police Tollway District master sergeant.

The accident occurred on I-94 eastbound at mile-marker 24.75, near Lake-Cook Road, according to the officer, who said she could not disclose any details on the crash since the investigation was active.

One man suffered fatal injuries from the crash, but next of kin had not yet been notified, she said. Four people with non life-threatening injuries were taken from the crash to an area hospital, the master sergeant said.
