An accident closed two lanes of northbound Interstate 255 at Mousette Lane early Thursday.

According to the Illinois State Police, the crash happened about 6 a.m. A northbound driver, who was not named by police because the report was not yet complete, lost control of his vehicle and smashed into the center median. No one was injured in the crash.

It was raining heavily at the time the motorist lost control and it was dark. State Police spokesman Calvin Dye Jr. said the driver was cited for driving too fast for conditions.

The accident was cleared a short time later and traffic flow returned to normal.
