All three lanes of northbound Interstate 55 near Channahon were closed during the morning rush hour Friday after a crash involving a semitrailer and multiple passenger vehicles.

The incident occurred at 6:52 a.m. just north of Interstate 80, when a passenger vehicle drove into the semitrailer, according to Illinois State Police District 5.

As of about 9 a.m., the semitrailer was on its side across all three lanes of the roadway and northbound traffic was traveling on the I-80 merge ramp and I-55's right shoulder, state police said.

There were no injuries and state police expected lanes would reopen by 9:30 a.m.
