CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Southbound I-55 reopened around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday after police and emergency crews worked to clean up a crash involving six vehicles – three semis and three cars. Three people were injured.

The accident shut down the SB lanes near Channahon for over an hour, prompting traffic to be detoured off the Stevenson at Route 6. Northbound lanes remained open, but drivers were warned to expect gaper delays.

The crash took place at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday. Traffic came to a stop in a construction zone on the near Bluff, causing a chain-reaction crash.

Three people were taken to local hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries, according to Illinois State Police.

Illinois State Police are investigating the crash.
