1 death blamed on fall snow storm in Illinois

BLOOMINGTON — Authorities say one person died on snow-slickened roads in central Illinois.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph says the driver of an SUV was killed Monday night after it spun out of control on an Interstate 39 overpass. The SUV slid into the path of a semitrailer and both vehicles then went down an embankment.

Meanwhile in northern Illinois, injuries were reported in several collisions blamed on snow and black ice.

WMAQ-TV reports 13 cars were involved in a pileup on an icy Joliet bridge on Monday evening. Two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
