Local lanes and ramps on the southbound Dan Ryan were closed into the afternoon Friday after a semitrailer crashed near Bridgeport on the South Side.

A semi truck traveling in the southbound lanes of I-94 hit a median wall around 2:15 a.m. near 26th Street and caused “significant damage” to an overpass, Illinois State Police said. A light pole also fell in the collision.

Southbound lanes were closed to all traffic until about 2:30 p.m., state police said.

Two vehicles struck debris from the crash, state police said. One person was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

The crash damaged the barrier wall separating the outbound Dan Ryan from the Chinatown Feeder ramp, according to a statement from the Illinois Department of Transportation.
