A fiery multi-vehicle crash shut down a portion of the Bishop Ford Freeway Saturday morning, officials say.

Illinois State Police said at least two vehicles and one tractor trailer were involved in the crash around 2 a.m. Saturday.

“It was reported that the truck-tractor was fully engulfed under the bridge,” according to a statement released.

At the moment, police have not confirmed any injuries and fatalities were unknown.

All northbound and southbound lanes were temporarily closed due to the damage caused to the bridge, officials said, therefore traffic was being rerouted on Sibley Blvd. for those heading inbound.
