A Chevrolet SUV vehicle rolled over near Half Day Road on I–94 eastbound at 2:36 p.m., according to a statement from Illinois State Police and the Deerfield Fire Department. The driver of the Chevrolet had swerved to avoid a silver or tan Jeep Liberty which was driving erratically.
A woman, whose age was not immediately known, was ejected from the Chevrolet and four other people, including two children, were injured inside the SUV during the crash, according to Deerfield Fire Department officials. None of the occupants were wearing seatbelts.
Three people were taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and two others were taken to Lake Forest Hospital. Two people were taken in serious-to-critical condition and three others in good condition, according to fire officials. All of their conditions had stabilized as of Monday afternoon.
The driver of the Chevrolet, a 37-year-old Milwaukee man, was cited for no child restraints, driving on a revoked license and failing to wearing a seatbelt, police said.
Traffic near the accident site was being directed off the highway onto Illinois Route 22 so that officials can investigate the crash, Illinois State Police said.
As of 6:42 p.m., all four lanes of the highway were reopened.
