The first crash occurred at 9:15 a.m. in the eastbound lane near mite marker 10. A 2003 Freightliner driven by Sergey Belozerov from Colorado Springs, Colo., received $5,000 in damages. Belozerov was traveling east from Washington to Illinois when he saw vehicles in front of him on the left side of the roadway and turned to the right and drove into the deep snow along the shoulder, according to the Highway Patrol. The snow broke the hood of the semi into several pieces. A North Dakota Highway Patrol report said the semi came to rest facing east on the right shoulder of the road. The vehicles that Beloweoy observed included a semi stuck in the median, a tow truck with the emergency lights on, and a patrol car with the emergency lights on. There was a no travel advisory for the area at the time of this crash, according to the North Dakota Department of Transportation and the Highway Patrol.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol report said Knell was traveling east from Glendive, Mont., to Belfield and turned left attempt- ing to steer into the median to avoid the mher vehicles. Knell was not able to stop before hitting Byer's semi. Byer's semi was stuck in the median facing east and was waiting to be towed. An unidentified passenger car got stuck in the roadway between the two semi trucks. No one was injured in the crash and no cita- tions were issued.
