Two women were killed in an early morning crash on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway in west suburban Forest Park on Sunday.
A rear-end collision involving an SUV and a van happened about 3:30 a.m. in the eastound lanes of Interstate 290 near the First Avenue exit, Illinois State Police Trooper Jonn-Paul Oliveto said.
