Three people were injured Wednesday afternoon in a three-car collision at the intersection of 135th Street and Route 59.
The crash occurred shortly after 3 p.m. in what appeared to be a chain-reaction accident in which one vehicle struck a second vehicle that then went into a third vehicle, Deputy Chief Jon Stratton said.
There was one driver in each of the cars. Two were driven by women, both of whom were taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville, Stratton said. One was in good to fair condition and the other in fair condition, he said.
The third driver, a man, was taken to in fair condition, he said.
The accident resulted in the temporary closure of 135th Street and the northbound lane of Route 59, Stratton said. It took about a half hour to clear the cars out of the intersection.
More details are not available and it's not known if any tickets were given because the did not return phone calls Wednesday afternoon.
