Footage taken by a passerby reveals the chaotic scene on I-94 close to Monticello Thursday morning.
As a snow squall handed by way of the realm, circumstances on the roads turned more and more difficult, and round 9:30 a.m. a crash occurred between Wright County Highway 19 and County Highway 18.
That crash turned a pileup involving a number of semi-trailers and a number of automobiles, with at the least one of many trailers catching fireplace, with the flames spreading to close by automobiles.
It precipitated the closure of westbound I-94, with eastbound I-94 following at 11:30 a.m.
Amongst these passing the scene was Holly Konz, who took video from an overpass that reveals the extent of the state of affairs, with dozens of drivers and automobile occupants having to be faraway from the scene.
It isn’t the one critical state of affairs on the roads Thursday morning, with the snowy circumstances inflicting a number of crashes all through central Minnesota.
Here is one other video exhibiting a semi jack-knifing on I-94 close to Albertville.
