CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Three accidents - one fatal - brought traffic to a standstill Saturday night on the Eisenhower Expressway.

The first crash happened about 8:30 p.m. when a man on the right shoulder tried to run across the expressway near Kostner Avenue and was fatally struck, Illinois State Police District Chicago Trooper Ivan Bukaczyk said.

He has not yet been identified, and the driver of the vehicle that struck him was not charged. The wreck shut down all outbound lanes, diverting traffic until about midnight.

While crews were cleaning up that crash, two other accidents happened in quick succession about 10:20 p.m. in the inbound lanes near Morgan Street, State Police said.

Crews cleared the first wreck quickly, but the second rear-end collision blocked all but the left lane until about 11 p.m., State Police said. No one was seriously injured in either inbound crash.

Illinois State Police continue to investigate all three wrecks.
