Icy roads and freezing rain caused an 11-car pileup in northwest suburban Schaumburg Saturday night, according to Illinois State Police.
The accident happened about 11:06 p.m. on the Elgin-O’Hare Expressway near Gary Avenue, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Bart Lamb said. Eleven cars were involved in the pileup.
“There was a short time where all of a sudden it turned into freezing rain and it was instant ice,” Lamb said.
Two people suffered minor injuries but did not require transport to hospitals, Lamb said.
The Winter Weather Advisory was issued Saturday evening and expired Sunday morning.
