URBANA — Two sets of accidents north of Urbana and Champaign on Interstate 74 had traffic tied up Friday morning starting about 7 a.m.
Illinois State Police at Pesotum said three cars slid out of control on the icy Canadian National overpass over Market Street just before 7 a.m. There were accidents in both directions.
Then, at 7:37 a.m., a white Dodge Ram pickup truck hit another pickup truck and a car as it headed east on I-74 near the Lincoln Avenue accident. The Dodge Ram kept going. No one was physically injured in any of the collisions.
Police continue to investigate the hit-and-run.
A telecommunicator at the District 10 headquarters at Pesotum said traffic was backed up in that area for about 90 minutes as troopers investigated and had the highway cleared.
