Footage taken by a passerby shows the chaotic scene on I-94 near Monticello Thursday morning.
As a snow squall passed through the area, conditions on the roads became increasingly challenging, and around 9:30 a.m. a crash happened between Wright County Road 19 and County Road 18.
That crash became a pileup involving several semi-trailers and multiple cars, with at least one of the trailers catching fire, with the flames spreading to nearby vehicles.
It caused the closure of westbound I-94, with eastbound I-94 following at 11:30 a.m.
Among those passing the scene was Holly Konz, who took video from an overpass that shows the extent of the situation, with dozens of drivers and vehicle occupants having to be removed from the scene.
It's not the only serious situation on the roads Thursday morning, with the snowy conditions causing multiple crashes throughout central Minnesota.
Here's another video showing a semi jack-knifing on I-94 near Albertville.
