A man was critically injured in a three-vehicle crash Tuesday night on I-294 in the south suburbs.
The driver of a Dodge Charger was critically injured in a crash with a semi truck and a 2012 Chevrolet sedan on I-294 near 95th Street, Illinois State Police said about 7:30 p.m.
A preliminary investigation found the semi failed to slow and struck the rear of the Charger, which then struck the sedan, police said.
The driver of the Charger, a 21-year-old Alsip man, was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, police said.
No citations have been issued as of Wednesday afternoon, police said.
All northbound lanes were temporarily closed at Cicero Avenue while the crash was investigated.
