Winter weather threatens Chicago, Ogle County, Princeton

Winter weather has come to Chicago, and with it are the crashes that are seen every year as a result of snowy weather. The snow and ice storm, Winter Storm Bruce, caused traffic to back up and become dangerous for those caught on the roads.

The storm has affected several states, but Illinois has suffered some of the worst of it. At least five people were injured so far when they were injured in a crash involving eight vehicles. The Illinois State Police reported that the accident happened on a feeder ramp entering the Kennedy Expressway. The five people, one of which was a child, had to be taken to the hospital. Fortunately, none were in life-threatening condition.

It's not just crashes that threaten drivers, though. Several snowmobile rescues also took place as people became stranded in their vehicles on Route 6. There were very high snowdrifts near Princeton, making the roads dangerous to travel on.

Thus far, the police in Ogle, as well as other areas, have stated that the roads are dangerous. In Ogle County, Illinois, the roads were still too dangerous to drive on as of the Nov. 27 report.

So many states are impacted by this storm that it's important that people across the Northern parts of America pay close attention to the weather. Particularly from Illinois through New England, it is causing hazardous conditions that threaten those who choose to drive. Stay off the roads in these conditions unless you have no other option because it is the only way to guarantee that you'll stay safe.
