October 16, 2012 (ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill.) (WLS) -- One person was killed and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 in Arlington Heights.
Illinois State Police are investigating the crash, which occurred around 9 a.m. Tuesday in the eastbound lanes near the Des Plaines Oasis.
