Suburban crashes blamed on icy roads

December 29, 2011 (BROOKFIELD, Ill.)

Slick roads may be to blame for an accident in west suburban Brookfield. An SUV lost control and slammed into a home at 31st and Forest. No one was hurt.

State police also briefly shut down the ramp from northbound I-55 to northbound I-355 after two accidents. No one was seriously hurt in the crashes there.

And in northwest suburban Des Plaines, the weather is being blamed for an accident involving a hotel transport van and a pickup truck on Elmhurst Road near I-90. The van was taking guests to O'Hare International Airport. Seven people were hurt.
