Black ice may have contributed to a crash on Lake-Cook Road in Palatine on Wednesday morning, police said.

Two vehicles, a 2008 Ford pickup and a 2012 Ford pickup, collided shortly before 6 a.m. on Lake-Cook Road just west of Hicks Road, police said. The driver of the 2008 truck, a 20-year-old Lake Zurich man, was cited for driving too fast for conditions. Black ice was likely a factor, police said. Neither driver was injured in the crash.
