Kistulinec said a truck tractor semitrailer changed lanes one to the right and struck a passenger vehicle, then both vehicles entered the right lane and struck a flat bed tow truck. All three wound up in a ditch on the right side of the tollway.

Investigators were working to determine what triggered the accident.

Kistulinec said two people were transported to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of injuries.

All lanes were reopened just after 3 p.m. Friday, she said.
