Dust Storm Causes Accidents, Prompts Temporary Highway Closure


Just when you thought you’d seen everything winter had to offer… how about a dust storm? 

 

That’s what closed down a section of Route 108 west of Carlinville Friday.  High winds and dry fields created a dust cloud that reduced visibility to near zero and led to two accidents… including one where a vehicle rear-ended a State Police squad car. 

 

A trooper went to the hospital, but his injuries are reportedly not serious.
