One person suffered serious non-life threatening injuries after a three-vehicle crash on I-74 Wednesday morning.

Illinois State Police says a black car was passing vehicles in the left lane entering the construction zone near mile marker 194 around 7:30 a.m.

The car cut off a Chevy Cobalt as it merged into the right lane. This caused a Champaign man driving a Chevy Cobalt to slam on his breaks causing a Ford Expedition to crash into a motorcycle, which hit the Chevy Cobalt.

The motorcycle then drove onto the right shoulder and came to rest on its side.

The motorcyclist, a 63-year-old man from Urbana, was taken to the hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries.

The drivers of the Ford Expedition and the Chevy Cobalt were not injured.

The condition of the driver of the black car is not known at this time.

The scene is now clear.

No word on if anyone is facing charges.


Illinois State Police Troopers are on the scene of an accident on Interstate 74 eastbound near milepost 194.

Drivers are advised to use caution when traveling in that area as the scene is being cleared from the roadway.
