Today's snowfall, despite being only one-half to one inch in total, has caused slick conditions that have led to many accidents on Chicago-area roads and expressways.
According to today's Chicago Tribune, in an article titled "Light snow makes for slick morning commute," by 7:15 a.m., Illinois State Police said they had responded to about two dozen crashes on Chicago area expressways.
One such accident happened on the Kennedy Expressway. As seen in the aforementioned Chicago Tribune article:
Shortly after 6 a.m., a nine-car crash was reported near North Avenue on the Kennedy Expressway, but there were no reports of serious injuries.
Some reports indicate this accident was in the Kennedy's Express Lanes.
Additional details and possible updates can be seen in the Chicago Tribune mentioned above, as well as other media sources including the WGNTV.com article of today titled "Snow causing icy roads, accidents during morning rush."
