EDWARDSVILLE, IL(KMOX)-No charges have been filed yet in Friday’s 10-vehicle crash on I-55 in Madison County, that injured ten people, three seriously.

Illinois state Police say a truck driver admitted he briefly took his eyes off the road to get a bottle of tea, before his truck rear-ended a pickup at the end of a construction-related backup near Route 143.

The crash that happened at about 1:40 pm, closed the northbound lanes of I-55 for about eight hours.
