    Serious injuries were reported in a crash involving an Illinois Department of Transportation snow plow early Friday in south suburban South Holland.

    Three people were injured, including the snow plow driver, state police said. At least one of the people suffered serious injuries, and all three were taken to hospitals for treatment. Their ages and genders weren’t known. 

    Detectives were investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, state police said.
