A semi truck jackknifed in blizzard-like conditions while traveling on Hwy 169 just south of Belle Plaine

A semi truck jackknifed in blizzard-like conditions while traveling on Hwy 169 just south of Belle Plaine on Saturday afternoon. The northbound lane of 169 was closed for about an hour. Several cars also landed in the ditch even after the no-travel advisories were lifted.

Deceptive is the word many people used to describe the conditions on social media due to the black ice.

Minnesota law enforcement officials are urging drivers to stay safe on the roads or to avoid travel if possible.
