4 die in Addison interstate crash

ADDISON – The Illinois State Police say four people died and four more were injured after a rollover crash.

The accident happened on Interstate 290 in Addison around 6 a.m. Thursday after a speeding SUV spun out of control. Addison is about 20 miles west of Chicago.

State Police Lt. Brian Windle said the car was loaded with eight adults, many of whom weren't wearing seatbelts. At least three people died when they were thrown from the SUV. A fourth person who died was in the passenger seat wearing a seatbelt. The driver survived.

Investigators haven't released the names and ages of those who died, but say they all had work IDs from a temporary employment agency in Chicago. They were heading to the western suburbs.
