He was then flown by helicopter to St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford for a broken leg, said Sgt. Tim Moore of the Illinois State Police.

The accident occurred on I-90 westbound at mile post 33.35, three or four miles west of the toll booth, and it closed that portion of the tollway for about a half-hour, authorities said.

The state police continue to investigate but have indicated there is no evidence that alcohol was involved in the crash.
