CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois State Police say snowy weather caused two crashes on a Chicago expressway that involved a total of 34 cars.

Police say both crashes happened in the same area and the express lanes were closed for hours. Local lanes of the expressway remained open.

Additional details were not immediately available. Illinois State Police is investigating.
