CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago area is expected to get 2 to 4 inches of snow during the morning rush hour on Wednesday.

The video with this story shows a massive pileup on a Wisconsin highway on Sunday–in similar conditions that are expected here tomorrow morning.

So, on Wednesday morning, slow down.

And if you need proof, watch this video.

It gets particularly scary around the 3:20 mark.

Nobody was killed in this accident, but three others died in separate accidents across the area.

The footage shows a massive pileup–police say dozens of cars and trucks were involved–as one vehicle after another slides out of control during the five-minute clip.

Drivers exiting their cars are seen scrambling to avoid being hit by out-of-control automobiles.

The accident happened on Highway 41/45 near Lannon Road in Germantown, Wis.

In a separate pileup accident a few miles down the same highway, police in Menomonee Falls said two people were killed.

The third fatality involved a woman who was killed in a rollover accident on Interstate 43 in Milwaukee County, police said.

Sunday’s crashes shut down the highway for about nine hours.
