The first snow of the season resulted in an increased number of accidents on area roadways. Illinois State Police District 9 investigated a total of 17 crashes with two of those crashes involving injuries and transports to local hospitals on December 4th from 10:30 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon. District 9 wanted to remind motorists to slow down and increase following distances between vehicles, especially during rain and snow, as speed is often times a contributing factor in crashes during inclement weather.
