Due to bad weather conditions in the state, a 30-kilometer section of the I-39 highway will be restricted for travel.

Several accidents involving more than 100 cars occurred in Illinois. This was reported by the local police on Twitter on Friday.

Among the main causes of the accident, law enforcement officers call poor visibility on the road caused by heavy snowfalls throughout the state. The police did not specify whether there were any victims among those involved in the accident.
