WARRENVILLE, Illinois — Police say three people are dead following a wrong-way crash involving two cars along Interstate 88 in suburban Chicago.

Illinois State Police say the crash happened shortly before 1 a.m. Friday, Dec. 2, along the interstate in the Warrenville and Naperville area.

Police said a Toyota Camry driven by 30-year-old Domenic Andreoni of Elgin was heading eastbound in the westbound lanes when it collided head-on with a Chrysler 300.

Police said Andreoni was pronounced dead at the scene along with the Chrysler's driver 32-year-old Ali Erhaima of Aurora and passenger 40-year-old Shiva Inampudi of Naperville.

Right before the crash, a witness called state police to report the Camry driver.

According to police, the Camry lost control and hit the left side wall. A witness said it looked like the driver corrected himself in the rearview mirror, but then went the wrong way and made contact with the Chrysler head-on.

Police investigating said it is not know how fast the vehicles were traveling.

Westbound traffic was closed and diverted off the interstate as crews responded, but the freeway was reopened around 6 a.m. Friday.
