I-74 eastbound messed up due to crash
Several area roads have posed problems for motorists today. Slide-offs have been reported in Iroquois, Kankakee and Vermilion counties. Black ice appears an issue as overnight re-freezing has left secondary routes very slick.
Illinois State Police and other emergency units were on the scene of a two vehicle crash involving a semi tractor trailer on Interstate 74 near Tilton this morning (Tuesday).
Traffic was moving slowly through the area and there was also a spill involving diesel fuel. Firefighters are on the scene, and the Vermilion County's Hazardous Materials team has also been called to help deal with the diesel spill.
No injury was reported.
State Police are urging motorists to use extreme caution in accident areas.
