Multiple car crashes slow Route 176 traffic in Prairie Grove

PRAIRIE GROVE – The rush-hour commute along Route 176 in Prairie Grove has been slowed because of multiple car crashes.

McHenry County Sheriff's deputies were called around 3:30 p.m. for three separate car crashes near the intersection of Route 176 and Bayview Beach Road in Prairie Grove. No injuries have yet been reported, said Undersheriff Andrew Zinke.

Two crashes occurred at the intersection and another east of the intersection. The high-traffic area, combined with the slick road conditions Thursday, likely played a factor, Zinke said.

Route 176 remains open to traffic, although the sheriff's office urges motorists to use caution in the area.
