No serious injuries are being reported from a series of crashes on I-270 this morning involving more than a dozen vehicles. Traffic was slowed significantly when three cars collided near the Chain of Rocks Bridge around 8:00 a.m. Then, as westbound traffic backed up to Illinois Route 3, more crashes happened. Within about a half hour, Illinois State Police were dealing with five crashes involving 15 vehicles.

State police say one driver was transported to a hospital in the area with non-life threatening injuries. According to the preliminary investigation, after the initial crash, the rest were chain reaction collisions.
