Impatient Drivers In Whiteout Cause North Dakota, Minnesota Wrecks

State Patrol, Twitter

FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Wintry weather turned roads deadly in North Dakota and Minnesota, killing two people in a four-vehicle crash near Barnesville, Minn.

In North Dakota, I-94 was closed for about five hours Monday in a series of crashes leading to a 10-vehicle pileup. One wreck was caused by a motorist who drove around road closures to get onto the interstate.

Five people were treated at a Jamestown hospital for injuries.

In Minnesota, a fatal crash occurred about 11:30 a.m. A semi was westbound in the left land of I-94 as a Department of Transportation snowplow cleared the right lane. A motorist tried to drive between the vehicles, smashing into both.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kaiser says while temperatures will be “raw” this week, he expects clear conditions.
