A construction worker was killed in a crash Friday night on I-294 near O’Hare Airport.

The crash happened about 10:15 p.m. in the northbound lanes at mile marker 41.1 near the interchange with I-90 in Rosemont, according to statement from Illinois State Police.

A 2013 Infiniti crossed into the closed lanes and struck the construction worker, police said. The Infiniti then struck an unoccupied van in the construction zone.

The driver of the Infiniti was treated at the same hospital for minor injuries, police said.
