The crash was in the southbound lanes, and there were major traffic delays Friday afternoon with only one SB lane open.

According to Illinois State Police, around 12:30 p.m., a semi, mini van and SUV were headed southbound on I-57 when the van tried to avoid hitting a motorcycle driver who had stepped in the road from the shoulder.

The other vehicles also tried to avoid hitting the motorcyclist.

Troopers say charges are pending. There is no word on injuries.
