Chain Reaction Crash on Rt. 20

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The snow on Saturday causes a chain reaction accident on Bypass 20, tangling traffic and sending some drivers to the hospital.

Illinois State Police say a vehicle slid off the road east of the Montague Road exit, and when another car stopped to help, more vehicles behind it hit a slick spot and couldn't stop. In total, five cars crashed and a handful of others slid off the road. Two people were taken to the hospital, troopers say they had minor injuries.
