When you combine blizzard conditions with 40 mile-an-hour winds, that’s a recipe for terrible driving conditions. Having a serious phobia of driving in the snow myself, I’d never get out in that kind of weather, but people who live in North Dakota are made of sterner stuff than I. Blizzard conditions caused a massive 100-car pile up in North Dakota, closing Interstate 94 from Fargo to Jamestown.
The key to the massive wreck was two tractor trailers which jackknifed due to the terrible weather. That explains how the pile-up started. Here’s a more important question: how did so many cars end up on the road during a blizzard? You’d think that, due to parts of the Interstate system being closed due to blizzard and with reasonable travel rendered impossible by snow, that people would want to stay home or would be driving slow enough to avoid any kind of catastrophes in front of them. I would be wrong, apparently.
