Several lanes were blocked on the inbound Dan Ryan Expressway after multiple crushed vehicles were spilled onto the road Tuesday afternoon.

A truck was transporting crushed or trashed vehicles shortly before 1 p.m. on inbound I-90/94 near 47th Street when about a dozen of them spilled onto the road, according to Illinois State Police.

All local lanes were open by 1:49 p.m., but the ramp to 47th remained blocked, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Crews were working to clear the wreckage, according to state police.
