Tow truck driver critically hurt in Stevenson Expressway crash

All inbound lanes reopened at 8:15 a.m. Monday after two people were injured, one of them critically, in a crash on the Stevenson Expressway near Cicero Avenue.

A tow truck driver was outside his truck about 2:45 a.m. assisting a semi on the shoulder of eastbound I-55 near Cicero Avenue when another vehicle rear-ended his truck, according to Illinois State Police.

The tow truck driver was then hit by either his truck or the vehicle that hit it, state police said. He and the driver of that vehicle were both taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where the tow truck driver was in critical condition.
