Bad weather caused dozens of accidents, almost all of them on state highways. Authorities say every public road and state highway had a crash. There were multiple accidents on both I-74 and I-57.
IDOT crews started treating the roads at 3 am, but many areas eventually froze over. Workers say the roads are dangerous and spotty.
Officials say, the best bet is to stay off the roads. They add, while there were a lot of accidents, there were only a few with injuries and no fatalities.
