STANLEY, N.D. — Authorities near Stanley say they're battling flames from a fiery crash involving two semi-trucks and three pickup-trucks.
North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Gary Orluck says that crews are assuming multiple victims at the Friday morning crash along U.S. Highway 2 about three miles east of Stanley.
Orluck says heavy fog that greatly reduced visibility in the area was a major contributor to the crash.
Traffic is again flowing after crews set up a detour to alleviate a significant backlog.
Authorities say more information will be available after oil from a tanker completely burns off.
