Sudden Temperature Drop Causes Multiple Vehicle Accidents on Tollway
At approximately 10:00 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12, fire department crews responded to a multivehicle accident on the northbound Tristate Tollway, just South of Lake Cook Rd.
A little earlier there had been a dusting of snow and the temperature dropped just below freezing. A sheet of ice formed on the bridge over the Spur causing six vehicles to collide, including a semi that slid into the ditch.
There were no injuries but fire department personnel assisted the semi driver out of his damaged cab. State police facilitated the cleanup. As a result of the drop in temperatures, multiple accidents occurred on Tristate ramps and bridges Monday night.
