A crash involving a car and two semis temporarily closed multiple lanes of the Tri-State Tollway near south suburban Hazel Crest Friday afternoon.

A car traveling northbound on the Tri-State in the far left lane near the ramp to westbound I-80 hit a semi about 12:30 p.m. while trying to change lanes, according to Illinois State Police. That semi then swerved to the right and hit a second semi.
