A crash involving multiple semis, including one that is jackknifed and blocking all lanes of traffic, has stopped southbound traffic on Interstate 35 in the Faribault area. 

Heavy snow has resulted in slick road conditions and reduced visibility where the crash took place, which is specifically located between Exit 66 to Millersburg Boulevard and Exit 59 to Highway 21. 

It is approximately 1 mile north of Faribault, according to MnDOT. 

MnDOT says the road is closed to all traffic except emergency vehicles and will remain closed until approximately 1:45 p.m. You can find updates via MnDOT here
