Icy Roads Cause Some Car Accidents
It was bad out there Sunday afternoon, but hang on; Tuesday's high is 60.
Jake and John Eleniewski of Elmhurst captured this car accident at approximately 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Crescent and Rex.
Elmhurst paramedics transported at least one person to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, they said.
Overnight Sunday, the temperature will gradually rise, reaching around 41 by 5 a.m. and probably eliminating the ice problem for the morning commute.
The roads were a mess for most of the afternoon Sunday, but all that is about to change; expect a high of 60 on Tuesday. Then, hang on for a wet roller-coaster weather ride. Here's the week's forecast, according to the National Weather Service:
