Three workers with the Illinois Department of Transportation were injured Thursday in a hit-and-run crash on the Kennedy Expressway.
The workers were traveling south in a maintenance vehicle about 1:40 a.m. when a gray-colored vehicle slammed into them from behind near Harlem Avenue, Illinois State Police said.
The impact sent the IDOT vehicle off the road and into some steel cable barrier wires, state police said.
The female driver of the gray-colored vehicle got out and fled on foot, state police said. Police have identified her but haven’t taken her into custody.
The three IDOT workers in the maintenance vehicle were taken to a hospital, police said. Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
State police are continuing their investigation.
