About 3:20 a.m., emergency crews responded to outbound expressway at 63rd Street for a multiple-vehicle crash with pinned-in vehicles, according to Chicago Fire Media.

The crash was caused by a driver going the wrong way on the expressway from at least 79th Street, the department tweeted.

Express lanes were closed for at least an hour early Friday. Local lanes remained open.
