    The southbound lanes of Interstate 57 re-opened Monday morning after being closed while authorities cleared up an early morning car accident that injured five people.

    Police say a full-size van rolled over on I-57 around 1:30 a.m. near 105th Street.

    The Chicago Fire Department reports the van brought down a light pole, and at least one person was ejected from the van in the accident.

    Four people were taken to area hospitals in serious-to-critical condition. A fifth was taken to the hospital in fair-to-serious condition.

    The outbound lanes were re-opened about an hour after the crash. 

    No word yet what caused the accident.
