Deadly highway accident along NB I-57, all lanes reopened

September 22, 2013 (CHICAGO)

It was unclear whether there were more fatalities. Police would only confirm one death.

The one-vehicle crash happened around 4 a.m. Sunday in the northbound lanes.

Traffic was diverted off the interstate, which caused one-mile traffic backup early Sunday. Police continue to investigate the incident.

Illinois State Police would not share details into the crash immediately.

There is no information on the victim's identity at this time.
