A multi-vehicle crash with injuries has traffic slowed on the northbound Tri-State Tollway Monday afternoon in the western suburbs.

The three-vehicle crash between two semi trucks and an SUV happened about 5 p.m. on I-94 close to the Cermak Toll near west suburban Oak Brook, according to Illinois State Police.

As of 6 p.m. only the right lane remained closed and the three left lanes have reopened, according to ISP.

Police said a 2004 Freightliner straight semi was “driving too fast for conditions and failed to slow for stopped traffic, striking the rear of the Chevy SUV.”

The Chevrolet SUV then struck the rear of a 2007 Freightliner semi.

The drivers were taken to hospitals in Elmhurst, Hinsdale and Maywood, but the extent of their injuries was not known.
