Brutal snow storms compound car crashes on Illinois highways

Illinois motorists were not feeling the love on Valentine's Day as yet another brutal barrage of freezing snow, sleet and ice storm devastated the state highways, dumping almost 6 inches of snow across the area.

Elderly couple killed in freak bridge collapse

It's a seemingly normal day and at first glance, apparently uneventful driving conditions. The last thing on one couple's mind was watching out for a freight train hurtling down a cliff towards their vehicle after falling off a bridge. Yet that is precisely what happened to a Glenview couple, while they were driving just a few blocks south of their home. The crash made the incident nationwide news after a freight train hauling coal on the viaduct in record-breaking 100 plus degree heat plunged off the bridge. Witnesses to the north reportedly watching as the cars slowly rumbled off the tracks, down a precipice, over the bridge and ended up in billowing plumes of black coal dust.
