Icy Roads Cause Several Crashes

Posted: Updated:

The roads continue to deteriorate as ice, snow and wind move into much of the Red River Valley. Several vehicles were involved in a crash on Interstate-29 near 19th Avenue North in Fargo.

The North Dakota State Patrol says the wind likely played a role in the crash. A semi hauling a wind turbine blade lost control and end up hitting other vehicles nearby. At least one person was taken from the crash by ambulance.

Another crash involving two vehicles happened on Interstate-94 near 20th Street in Moorhead. From a photo tweeted by the Minnesota State Patrol, you can see one car laying on its side and another off the road. Rollovers have also been reported on Highway 10 near Glyndon, Dilworth and Hawley, Minnesota.

The road conditions will likely only be getting worse. A Blizzard Warning is in effect for much of North Dakota Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. Valley News Live Meteorologist Mick Kjar says Friday afternoon could bring areas of sleet and freezing rain along and south of I-94, causing dangerously slippery roads.

A gusty south wind will prevail most of the day on Friday and by late evening, gusty northwest wind and snow will take over, with areas of ZERO visibility expected to create life-threatening conditions.

This storm will bring the potential for some areas to suffer power outages, with ice and wind possibly damaging power lines, especially along the ND-SD border. Stay tuned as the exact track/timing of the storm evolves.
