An accident snarled southbound traffic Tuesday morning on Interstate 255 near the Illinois 15 interchange.
The crash occurred around 9:30 a.m. when a semi rear ended a passenger vehicle, according to Illinois State Police spokesman Calvin Dye Jr.
A car had switched lanes to avoid a wide-load truck that had pulled over onto the side of the road. As the car quickly slowed down due to traffic, the semi hit the vehicle from behind.
Around 10:15 a.m., one lane of traffic was open while fire and towing crews cleaned up the accident.
