Woman, 21, dies in bus accident on I-55


At about 6:45 a.m., a Burlington Trailways bus was traveling on I-55 northbound near Damen, when for unknown reasons, lost control and struck a construction arrow board sign.

Four other passengers were sent to the hospital in stable condition with injuries that appeared not to be life-threatening.

At this time, the far right two lanes on I-55 near Damen are closed, but traffic is able to get by in the far left lane and shoulder.

No other information is available at this time. The crash is still being investigated.
