A passenger was killed and a driver injured in a Thursday morning wreck on Interstate 57 just north of Peotone, according to the Illinois State Police.

Troopers reportedly found an overturned Chevy Impala when they responded to the crash about noon.

The Impala flipped in the northbound lanes after it hit a semitractor-trailer, state police said, and both the driver and passenger were ejected.

“The passenger of the Chevrolet was transported to an area hospital, where she was pronounced deceased,” police said. “The driver of the Chevrolet was airlifted to an area hospital for injuries.”

State police were withholding the names of the passenger and the injured driver, as well as the driver of the tractor-trailer.

Police continued to investigate the crash Thursday afternoon.
