55-year-old Braidwood woman seriously injured after I-55 crash near Channahon

A 55-year-old Braidwood woman was seriously injured after a crash Wednesday morning on Interstate 55 near Channahon.

Illinois State Police were investigating the single-vehicle crash, which occurred about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday on southbound I-55 at Arsenal Road, according to a news release. Preliminary reports indicate a Honda Accord was traveling north on I-55 when it struck the median wires. The vehicle then rolled over and came to rest in the southbound lanes.

The driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, was airlifted to an area hospital, where she remained stable. There were some lane closures because of the investigation, but all lanes reopened about 2:30 p.m.

The crash remained under investigation Wednesday.
