Snowfall Causes Multiple Accidents In Chicago Areas

On January 25, 2013, Chicago ended its record-breaking 335 days without snowfall. And although Chicago drivers should be used to driving in snow from years past, the morning commute that Friday was a disaster. This article from ABC News describes its effect on Chicago streets and expressways. Dozens of spinouts and wrecks were reported that morning. The worst was an eight-car pileup on the Kennedy, causing all inbound lanes to be closed. Chicago officials ended up implementing an emergency snow plan—in which uninjured drivers involved in a crash should exchange information on the crash site and contact police at a later time. Luckily, the Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation sent out 199 plows to clear up all main roads, including Lake Shore Drive. Interstate highways such as I-80/94 and I-65 has also reported some accidents and slide-offs, but were efficiently cleared and salted as well. However, now that winter and snow have finally arrived in the Windy City, motorists can expect plenty of slick and dangerous conditions during their commutes. Freezing rain—where warm air overruns cold air at the surface—is likely, which can cause roads to turn into little more than glorified ice rinks. This is expected to hit hardest in the northern suburbs. During future snowfalls or ice storms, you can learn where Chicago crews are working by visiting this site, which includes a link to a Plow Tracker along with other miscellaneous winter apps. Dangerous weather conditions can cause serious accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured or involved in a crash, it is best to contact an experienced accident attorney today. Seeking legal advice can help you discover if you're entitled to compensation. Our law firm has over 40 years experience helping individuals in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Kendall, McHenry, and Will Counties.
