First Snowfall of Season Leads to Increased Number of Traffic Accidents

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.
