Default alleged 20+ car pile-up

6 Semis, 15 to 16 passenger vehicles involved. 8 ambulances and 3 fire departments on scene. No specific reports right now, but they just came on the air with a preliminary report.

It'* in Elko MN, kinda halfway between where Lakeville and the 'Kato boys live. I hope none of them are in this kind of mess....

Central MN is a mess right now. There are advantages to not having a job today....

Well, no reporters on scene yet, but police reports have it up to 50 to 60 vehicles, 6 sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

One Trooper they talked to said close to 300 crashes already this morning. All this from just maybe 2 inches of snow. I'll still say Minnesota Drivers Licenses are water soluble...

The problem this morning id that we just finally hit 0* at 11 o'clock. Black ice everywhere

we had a 30 car pile up on thursday that closed the Canadas busyest highway (401)for 3 day!.
it was that bad becase one of the "cars" was a fully loaded tanker truck that exploded and burnt for hours
Quote:
Twenty-three cars and seven tractor trailers were involved in the accident in the eastbound lanes, including a tractor trailer that was carrying fuel.

The rig exploded, burning more than 50,000 litres of gasoline and causing other vehicles to catch fire

There has been many pileups around here too.

It'* stupid we are still having class at the university. 20,000 more people driving on the ice rinks around here is a great idea.
