Crews were able to relocate the debris onto the Harlem entrance ramp. The ramp was closed for several hours. Drivers had to enter the inbound Ike at First Avenue or Austin.

One person was injured in the crash, which involved the semi and a passenger vehicle and occurred about 2:30 a.m., according to Illinois State Police.

An occupant of the passenger vehicle was taken to a hospital with "minor injuries," state police said.
