Freezing Rain Turns Interstate 94 Into A Skating Rink, West Fargo, ND

A perfect combination of freezing precipitation, winds gusting to 30, and temperature, led to a narrow strip of ice and black ice on Interstate 94 a few miles west of West Fargo, North Dakota. Traffic was moving close to Interstate speeds of 75 mph when it encountered this portion of highway. Video includes a semi losing control and jackknifing into the ditch, a few near misses, and a tipped semi blocking both eastbound lanes of I-94.
