A crash Tuesday morning in the inbound lanes of the Eisenhower Expressway in Chicago created some major traffic headaches during the morning rush. A truck tractor flat bed trailer hauling large sheets of glass hit the overpass at Keeler.

The preliminary investigation shows the load was over height. Debris spilled, and two other vehicles were damaged.

Three lanes of traffic were closed for a time as IDOT inspectors checked out the overpass. They determined that it is structurally sound.

No one was seriously hurt.
