[December 05, 2016]  On Sunday, December 4th, between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., the Illinois State Police District 9 officer investigated a total of 17 crashes.

Two crashes involved injuries and transports to local hospitals. Due to the volume of crashes, information is limited at this time and press releases will be sent as soon as possible.

District 9 reminds motorists to slow down and increase following distance between vehicles especially during rain and snow. Speed is often times a contributing factor in crashes during inclement weather.
