Nine children were injured seriously Sunday when the SUV in which they were riding rolled over on the Eisenhower Expressway at Kostner.

Twelve children were on board. The Ford Explorer was carrying a total of 14 people.

It was not clear what caused the SUV's driver to lose control. Authorities say the driver will be ticketed for seatbelt violations and charged with child endangerment.

Crash and emergency equipment shut down part of the expressway.
