The accident happened around 1:15 Monday afternoon just south of the Rockton Road exit. Police are still trying to put all the details together.
We have been told that three cars were involved. The names of the victim and others injured haven't yet been released by the Illinois State Police.
The interstate was closed down for a while, but now all lanes have been opened and traffic is beginning to slowly flow again.
Another accident in that same area killed a 50-year old Rockford man on June 12.
