2 killed, 1 hurt in I-94 crash in Moorhead

MOORHEAD, (AP) – Two people have died and a third was injured in a four-vehicle crash in bad weather on Interstate 94 in western Minnesota.

The State Patrol says visibility was at or near zero when it happened about 11:30 a.m. Monday in the westbound lanes near Barnesville, about 22 miles southeast of Moorhead. Sgt. Jesse Grabow says the poor visibility likely was a factor.

The Patrol closed the westbound lanes and diverted traffic so investigators could reconstruct the crash and move the vehicles.

Names of the dead have not been released.

A blizzard warning covers parts of the eastern Dakotas and of western Minnesota. Blowing snow and icy roads have created hazardous driving conditions and led to dozens of accidents. No travel is advised in parts of northwestern Minnesota.
