Wintry conditions causing crashes, spinouts on Chicago area roads


CHICAGO — A wintry mix Friday is causing messy, hazardous travel conditions in some parts of the Chicago area.

Scattered bursts of snowfall has been reported on the roads in Northwest Indiana, the south side of Chicago and the southern suburbs.

Multiple crashes have been reported due to the slick, icy conditions. Eastbound Interstate 94 at a standstill near Lake Station due to a crash involving an overturned Amazon truck is blocking all lanes. Interstate 65 also has closures in both directions near US231 due to rolled over semi trucks.

Officials advise driving with extreme caution and allowing extra time for travel.
