Police: Freezing rain caused crashes on I-57, I-74

(PESOTUM) Poor weather conditions led to multiple crashes Sunday night on I-57 and I-74 in Champaign and Douglas counties.

State police responded to several slide offs on I-57 in Pesotum and on I-74 near Mahomet, where multiple crashes are said to have occurred, according to a statement from Illinois State Police. The crashes began about 3 p.m., but a bulk of them occurred at 7 p.m., police said.

No one was seriously injured as a result of the crashes.

Pesotum and Mahomet are both about 150 miles south of Chicago.

Freezing rain caused roadways to be covered ice on the roadway, making driving conditions difficult, police said.
