Police say that three individuals were taken to area hospitals following the crash, one of whom had sustained “life-threatening injuries.” The other two individuals suffered “serious injuries,” but police did not elaborate on the conditions of those individuals.

A fourth person refused medical treatment at the scene, police said.

Eastbound lanes of the Eisenhower were closed for approximately 45 minutes for crash investigation and clean-up, and reopened just before 4 a.m.

No further details on those injured, or on potential charges or citations, were immediately made available.
