The crash on Harrison happened at around 6am. Drivers said conditions on the road were so icy, they were going as slow at 10mph and still could not stop. One car took out a light pole. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
The westbound lanes of Harrison were closed for about 3 hours for cleanup.
All morning, slick areas were being reported in Rockford and surrounding communities, bringing out calls for extra sand and salt in slick spots.
Crews worked overnight to keep main roads clear. The biggest hazards were residential streets and patches of ice. There were also several reports of medical help for falls on ice covered driveways and sidewalks.
