Illinois State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash just before 4:15 a.m. The driver of a 2018 Dodge Journey rear-ended another vehicle, lost control, hit a guardrail, spun around and ended up in the median.
State troopers shut down all lanes of eastbound I-80 for crash cleanup and an investigation, backing up traffic for miles.
