Three people were injured in a crash on Interstate 90 near Route 59 in Hoffman Estates early Wednesday, state police officials confirmed Wednesday morning.

Master Sgt. Rob Fierstein of the Illinois State Police said all three suffered minor, non-life threatening injuries in the five-car accident that took place in the center lane of eastbound I-90 at 7:38 a.m.

All three were transported to Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village, he said. Their conditions are unknown.

It remains unclear what caused the chain-reaction accident, Fierstein said, adding that police are still investigating the incident.

The left lane of eastbound I-90 was blocked for about an hour while the incident was cleared, he added.
