A car accident on Interstate 57, near milepost 54, shut down both lanes of northbound traffic, according to Illinois State Police.

Officers received the call about 7:57 p.m., District 22 Public Information Officer David Sneed said. Traffic was being rerouted to other roads, including Illinois 37 until Johnston City. There is no information on the number of vehicles involved in the crash or if there were any injuries involved.

Sneed said more information would be released later.
