    One person was killed in a crash Wednesday afternoon on Interstate-55 near south suburban Romeoville, state police said.

    A box truck crashed into the back of a semi before 3 p.m. on northbound I-55 near the Weber Road exit, police said. Video of the scene showed the front of the box truck was barely recognizable.

    One northbound lane of the interstate was reopened by 5 p.m. after being shut down for a couple of hours, but traffic remained snarled for several hours.
