    Nine people are hospitalized in 29-car pileup on Minnesota highway

    Nine people are hospitalized following fiery 29-car pileup involving 15 semi-trucks after powerful snow squall engulfs icy Minnesota highway

    • About 15 semitrucks were involved in a 29-vehicle crash in Minnesota Thursday
    • The accident took place just before 9am on Interstate 94 near Monticello 
    • The pileup occurred after a snow squall engulfed the road, reducing visibility
    • Nine people were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, police said  

    Twenty-nine vehicles, including at least 15 semi-trucks, were involved in a fiery car collision on Thursday after a powerful snow squall engulfed a Minnesota highway. 

    The accident took place just before 9am on Interstate 94 near Monticello – about 40mi northwest of Minneapolis – after a heavy band of snow significantly reduced visibility on the roads.

    The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) said the initial crash was reported between Wright County Road 19 and County Road 18.

    At least one semitrailer burst into flames, sending thick black smoke billowing into the air and forcing authorities to shut lanes in both directions.

    The driver of the truck was not injured and was reported to be ‘OK’, Minnesota State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow said on Twitter.   

    Nine people were taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening life injuries.

    As of Thursday afternoon, westbound traffic on the I-94 at Highway 25 remained closed as authorities work to clean up burnt vehicles, tires and other debris. 

    Eastbound traffic has since reopened, police said. 

    Photos from the scene showed several burnt-out vehicles lining the icy roads covered in charred debris. 

    Traffic cameras also showed dark plumes of smoke covering the air.

    The accident remains under investigation, Grabow said. 

    The horror crash came as the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a snow squall warning in the region.

    ‘A narrow band of heavy snow will impact the Twin Cities metro this morning. Conditions will rapidly deteriorate with visibility dropping to 1/4 mile or less in a matter of minutes,’ the NSW tweeted

    ‘Please exercise caution when traveling.’

    While snow squalls are known to last less than an hour, they can produce dangerous, sudden white-out conditions and icy roads in a matter of minutes, according to the weather service.
