A rollover crash and “police activity” following a shooting had blocked two lanes of the Bishop Ford Freeway in Cook County Wednesday morning.
The incident happened near Steele Bridge, north of 142nd Street, where a rollover crash turned into police activity, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.
According to Illinois State Police, troopers responded to a shooting on northbound Interstate 94 south of Steel Bridge just after 10 a.m. Preliminary reports indicated there were two people taken to area hospitals with injuries, though it remains unclear if the injuries were due to gunshot wounds.
State police didn’t say if the crash and shooting was connected.
