Traffic starts at illinois Indiana border and goes for who knows. Multiple reports of jackknifed semi's and multiple accidents on i-65. Be careful and avoid the area completely if your heading that way.

Came through there shortly after this happened 2 jack knifed semis completely blocking east bound 80/94 at exit 2 with about a dozen other vehicles involved.

All lanes remain blocked at exit 2 eastbound. Multiple multi vehicle crashes reported throughout the Chicagoland area. 9 car pile up reported on 294. It's Armageddon out here haha.

It was already pretty icy here in Indiana, but it snowed again last night! I'm at the pilot right after you enter from Michigan, it was already an ice rink here! rofl-1.gif

I stayed home today, in had a feeling it would be ugly and it is. Indy area is bad too from what I saw.

They said they hooked to jack knifed trucks, but now the tow trucks are stuck so they will have to deal with that.

Be safe out there!

That's terrible, send a tow truck out to help a truck stuck or jack knifed, only for the tow truck to get stuck themselves. SEND MORE TRUCKS!
