CHICAGO (WLS) — One person was killed and another seriously injured in a fiery crash involving a truck in the Hegewisch neighborhood on the Southeast Side, Chicago police said.

A Dodge Journey was traveling northbound on Torrence Avenue when police said it ran a red light and was struck by a semi-trailer traveling east on 130th Street.

The Dodge then spun out and was struck by another semi-trailer traveling east on 130th Street.

The male driver of the Dodge SUV was killed and pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

The driver of the first semi-trailer was transported to Advocate Christ Hospital in serious condition, police said. The driver of the other semi-trailer was not injured.

The intersection of Torrence Avenue and 130th Street is closed as police investigate, which has led to backups on the northbound Bishop Ford Freeway.
