OTTAWA - Authorities were investigating Friday whether a double fatality on Interstate 80 near Ottawa on Thursday was the result of this week's snowfall that began hours before the accident.
Timothy Moynihan, 48, of Chicago and George Sbalchiero of Munster, Ind., died shortly after being taken to an Ottawa hospital.
Authorities said they drove into the rear of a cement truck driven by a man who was injured. His name was not available Thursday.
The accident happened about 230 p.m. as police were beginning to receive "numerous" calls about weather-related accidents. However, authorities were still trying to determine the cause of the fatal accident.
