Gusty winds, heavy snow, and icy roads are being blamed for two crashes which occurred Wednesday morning on Interstate 57, south of the town of Manteno.
According to police, the low visibility and perilous road conditions led to a southbound pickup truck losing its grip on the road and sliding into a ditch, where it was hit by a second vehicle at approximately 5 o’clock in the morning. Further details are not known.
The terrible weather had reduced visibility to less than a mile as of 6:45 in the morning, according to the weather service at Greater Kankakee Airport. The heavy winds are expected to make travel difficult until they abate.
