Two people were shot Friday on the Eisenhower Expressway on the West Side.

A 23-year-old man was driving east on I-290 about 8:20 p.m. when someone in another vehicle pulled up and fired shots at him near Pulaski Road, Illinois State Police said.

The shooting caused the man to crash into an embankment, and he was hospitalized with at least one gunshot wound, state police said. A female in his vehicle was not injured.

About 15 minutes later, a 44-year-old woman who was driving a separate vehicle showed up at a local hospital and said she had been injured in the shooting, state police said.

Neither person’s injuries were considered life-threatening, state police said.

All eastbound lanes were closed at Cicero Avenue as state police investigated the shooting and were reopened just after midnight.

Seven people have now been shot on Chicago area expressways this week, including a man who was wounded in a mid-day shooting Thursday on the Dan Ryan Expressway and a man and woman who were shot during the morning rush Wednesday on the Stevenson Expressway.
