A driver was seriously injured in a rollover crash Wednesday morning on I-55 in southwest suburban Channahon.

About 9:45 a.m., a Honda Accord was northbound on I-55 near Arsenal Road when it veered left and hit the center median wires, according to a statement from Illinois State Police. The Honda then rolled over and came to a rest in the southbound lanes.

The driver, a 55-year-old Braidwood woman who was the only person in the vehicle, was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries, state police said. Her condition has since been stabilized.

Southbound I-55 was reduced to a single lane near Arsenal while authorities investigated the crash, but all lanes had been reopened, according to state police.
