SHARE Inbound Kennedy reopens after crash that left man critically injured

A west suburban man was critically injured in a crash Saturday morning on the Kennedy Expressway on the Northwest Side, temporarily shutting down all southbound lanes.

The 25-year-old Cicero man was driving a gray 2013 Toyota south on I-90 at 5:01 a.m. when it collided with the back of a semi at a high speed near Fullerton, according to Illinois State Police. He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

The truck driver, a 55-year-old Pennsylvania man, suffered minor injuries, state police said.

Traffic was temporarily getting by in the express lanes and the right shoulder while crews investigated the crash, but all lanes have since been reopened for normal traffic, state police said. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
