Black ice contributing to Monday evening traffic accidents

Posted by wlpo on January 26, 2015

Icy roads contributed to dozens of accidents across the Illinois Valley. Freezing drizzle late Monday afternoon left roads covered with black ice.

Truck accidents slowed traffic on Interstate 39 between Mendota and Interstate 80. Numerous people ended up in ditches or yards. Most of the accidents were minor but there were several people injured.

Please so down and be prepared to stop. The National Weather Service issued a Freezing Rain Advisory until 6am Tuesday.
