CHICAGO, IL -- Two people injured Sunday morning when their car was hit by another vehicle and overturned on Interstate 290 in Chicago's Garfield Park area, reports CBS News Chicago

The collision took place on the outbound lanes of I-290 (Dwight D. Eisenhower Expressway) at Central Park Avenue, at about 1:30 a.m. Illinois State Police troopers arrived on the scene shortly after.
