A three-vehicle accident closed the Eisenhower Expressway Tuesday afternoon. A helicopter was brought in to take one victim to the hospital. Two cars and a truck were reportedly involved in the accident in the in-bound lanes of the expressway. Those lanes were shut down.

Westbound motorists caused a jam-up when they slowed to look at the accident.

Traffic in both directions was stopped to let a medical helicopter land and then to take-off with the injured motorist.
