Light snow and cold temperatures caused problems on some Chicago area expressways and streets Saturday morning.

There were a number of crashes and spinouts.

Salt trucks hit the road in an effort to keep drivers safe. The city initially deployed 75 trucks early Saturday morning. Another 99 joined them later.

They are working to put salt on the side streets before temperatures fall Saturday night.
