CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe was live in the Mobile Weather Lab driving through Bloomingdale on U.S. 20. Mugo Odigwe described wet roads with ice and snow (Mugo Odigwe/CBS Chicago).
There were 15 personal injury (PI) crashes logged near Arlington Heights between 4:20 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. Tuesday, December 29, 2020. Two of the crashes were hit-and-run personal injury crashes located in or near Addison, Illinos.
Treacherous road conditions were seen all around the Chicago area Tuesday evening (CBS Chicago).
Chicago and the suburbs saw the season’s first measurable snowfall Tuesday and is waking up to rain and slick roads Wednesday.
Maria Castaneda with the Illinois Department of Transportation told CBS 2 expressway are pretty clear and rising temperatures are helping decrease ice. She said drivers should take it slow on ramps and bridges that remain icy into the morning.
Who’s ready for the first accumulating snowfall of the season?!? ❄️⛄️

As winter weather hits the area, the period of rain is causing hazardous traffic conditions with icy roads. So much that a @cta bus slid into a parked car in the 5200 block of South Hyde Park Blvd. Now on @CapturedNews . #ilwx #chitraffic #BreakingNews #ChicagoScanner pic.twitter.com/3Jt5IdgpN8

Freezing rain currently falling across most McHenry County. The glistening ice is beginning to accumulate on non-treated surfaces, including power lines, which are failing and igniting. #ilwx @CapturedNews pic.twitter.com/PCQ54SiAAZ
