(Valley City, ND) -- North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) says a multiple vehicle pileup caused several hours of delays on I-94

Highway Patrol says the crash began when a vehicle rear-ended a pickup towing a snowmobile trailer. The collision caused the trailer to jackknife onto the highway, causing additional vehicles to crash into the blockage. Westbound I-94 was closed for nearly 3 hours while the crash scene was cleared. 

A total of nine passenger vehicles and five commercial motor vehicles were involved in the crash, with twenty-two people locked within the pileup. One serious and three minor injuries were found at the scene, with all initially transported to Mercy Hospital in Valley City. The serious injury was eventually taken to Sanford Hospital in Fargo. 

The crash still remains under investigation at this time.
