Kennedy Expressway hit-and-run: 3 IDOT workers hurt in I-90, Harlem crash near Chicago’s Norwood Park, Illinois State Police say


CHICAGO (WLS) — #Three #Illinois #Department of #Transportation workers were hurt in a hit-and-run crash on the #Kennedy #Expressway early #Thursday morning, #Illinois #State #Police said.

The crash occurred about 1:40 a.m. on the inbound side of the #Kennedy at #Harlem #Avenue, near #Chicago’s #Northwest #Side #Norwood #Park neighborhood, police said. The IDOT workers were putting out cones for a closure and were inside their work vehicle with flashing lights when they were rear-ended by a driver in a gray car, according to police. The impact forced the IDOT truck off the road.

The female driver then took off running from the scene, leaving her car behind, police said. #Officials know who the suspect is but had not yet found her as of later #Thursday morning.

The three workers were transported to the hospital and are expected to be OK, according to law enforcement officials.
