One person was killed and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 in Arlington Heights.

Illinois State Police are investigating the crash, which occurred around 9 a.m. Tuesday in the eastbound lanes near the Des Plaines Oasis.

An earlier crash down the road led to lane blockages and a traffic backup. Officials say a box truck may have failed to slow down for that earlier accident and run into another vehicle and touching off the chain reaction crash.
