New video shows highway carnage from massive Minnesota pileup


A Facebook user shared terrifying video of a major pileup crash that occurred on a Minnesota interstate on Thursday morning.

Video shared by Facebook user Holly Konz was captured on westbound I-94 east of Monticello, Minnesota, after a snow squall warning had been issued for the area.

The video shows heavy plumes of black smoke rising up in the air from a truck fire, as well as several semi trucks and passenger vehicles smashed together on the snow-slicked interstate.

State troopers say that the driver of the truck that caught fire is okay, but it isn’t yet clear whether there are other injuries.

Lengthy road closures and delays are expected.
