Harlem Ave. reopens in Lyons after crash between tanker truck and car

LYONS TOWNSHIP, Ill. (WLS) -- Harlem Avenue just north of the Stevenson Expressway reopened Sunday afternoon after a crash between a tanker truck and a car.

The tanker truck was filled with gasoline at the time of the crash in southwest suburban Lyons.

First responders say a driver ran a red light and hit a semi-truck near Harlem and 45th Street around 6 a.m. Sunday morning.



The car was wedged underneath the truck and crews worked to free it using a crane.

The drivers of both the truck and the car are okay.
