Video: Pileup footage shows what not to do in a Minnesota blizzard

Author:

This video shows you exactly how not to drive when approaching a crash scene during a snowstorm.

Released by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, it shows a pileup unfold on Interstate 35 south of Faribault on Tuesday during the heavy snow that was blanketing the southeast of the state. Take a look.

The department says there are "a lot of safe-driving lessons to be learned" from the footage, which shows cars and trucks fail to stop in time at a crash scene in poor visibility, and end up piling into queuing vehicles.

Officials say there were at least a dozen cars, three semis and a farm truck involved in the crash – but nobody was injured.
