CHICAGO (WLS) -- Ten people were injured, including two children, in a multi-vehicle crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway early Tuesday morning.

Three cars were involved in the crash that occurred in the inbound lanes of I-90/94 near 95th Street at about 12:35 a.m., according to Illinois State Police.

Six people were taken to hospitals in serious-to-critical condition, while three more people were hospitalized in fair-to-serious condition, fire officials said. Police said a tenth person drove on their own to the hospital. Their ages and genders were not known.

Police said two children, a boy and girl, were among the victims.

An eyewitness said a driver tried to travel in reverse to exit the expressway.

"He tried to back up and come back, backing up on the expressway on the outskirt, which is a dumb move, he backed up and the guy coming down the expressway really fast and the impact happened," the witness said.

The inbound lanes of the expressway were temporarily closed, re-opening at about 4:30 a.m., police said.
