4 injured in 4-vehicle crash on I-80

Four people were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries because of a four-vehicle crash that happened Sunday night.

Illinois State police responded at 5:44 p.m. to an accident that involved two tractor-trailers and two passenger vehicles, Trooper DeAnn Falat said.

Two occupants from one tractor-trailer and both occupants of the passenger vehicles were taken to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox with minor injuries that were not life-threatening, state police said.

The crash happened on Interstate 80 eastbound at milepost 144 near Mokena.

All eastbound traffic was shut down for an hour and a half because of metal debris that spread through all lanes of traffic.
