No one was injured following a reported shooting that led to a crash late Friday night on the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side, according to Illinois State police.

A preliminary investigation found that the shots were fired from a vehicle traveling north on the I-94 at 47th Street, state police said.

The shooting causes victim vehicle to veer off the road to the left and strike the concrete medial wall before coming to a rest, state police said. The man driver and his passenger, 38 and 39, were not struck by gunfire.

The 38-year-old driver was arrested at the scene of the crash and charged with driving under the influence, and other moving violations, state police said. He was released on bail.

Following an investigation, all northbound lanes of traffic reopened about 1 a.m.
