(Rural Cass County, ND) — A multi-vehicle crass in Cass County sent six motorists to the hospital Monday.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, a 14-vehicle crash, with six injuries, occurred Monday west of Mapleton on I-94 in the westbound lane. Six semis and eight passenger vehicles were involved.
According to the Highway Patrol, a rear-end style collision occurred between a passenger vehicle and semi. These vehicles blocked both westbound lanes of I-94, and the additional vehicles involved failed to see the vehicles blocking traffic. The Highway Patrol says this occurred due to the poor visibility.
Six motorists were transported to Sanford Hospital as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, including a 69-year-old female, from Casselton, who sustained serious, but non-life threatening, injuries.
The crash, which is still under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol, shut down the westbound lanes for approximately five hours while emergency responders removed the vehicles and conducted an investigation.
