Bad Time on Northern I-94 (update)

Comments Off

This is looking to be a tough night of travel for I-94 in Northwestern Minnesota. The road was shut down due to multiple semi crashes.

The St Cloud Times is reporting that the shutdown has parked over 100 cars:

Patrol Sgt. Jess Grabow says freezing rain fell, causing several semis to jackknife and two to collide near Barnesville in Clay County.

The problem has been due to tough driving due to freezing rain and snow.

(update) The Fargo Forum had pictures and reported:

In North Dakota, more than 20 crashes were reported in and around the Fargo and West Fargo areas, including 15 crashes on a stretch of I-29 extending about eight miles south of Fargo’s 32nd Avenue South, state Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind said. A West Fargo police squad car that got rear-ended was among those involved in the morning crashes, he said.
