A Steger man was killed and three other people were hurt when a minivan rear-ended a car stopped in the express lanes of the Dan Ryan Expressway near 26th Street this morning.
At about 4:20 a.m., a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica was stopped for traffic ahead
while traveling northbound in the express lanes on I-94 near 26th Street.
While stopped, the Chrysler was rear-ended by a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander
minivan, which caused the Chevrolet to hit the right wall and flip over.
The minivan was occupied by three people, but at this time, it is not clear
who was behind the wheel.
One of the minivan's occupants was taken to Northwestern Hospital and listed
as being in serious condition while another, 32-year-old Dennis Moore of Steger,
was transported to John Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.
Moore, of the 3000 block of West 34th Street in the south suburb,
was pronounced dead at 5:08 a.m. at Stroger.
The driver of the Chrysler was also transported to Stroger hospital with
non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation remains ongoing and no charges have been filed at this
