Two people were killed in a crash Monday afternoon in southwest suburban Lockport.

The crash happened about 1:25 p.m. on the Ninth Street Bridge, located east of Route 53 and Renwick Road, according to Illinois State Police.

A Chevrolet Suburban SUV was traveling east when it crossed into the westbound lanes on the bridge and collided with a Ford F-150 pickup truck, state police said.
