  •  Wintry weather turned roads deadly in North Dakota and Minnesota, killing two people in a four-vehicle crash near Barnesville, Minn.
    In North Dakota, I-94 was closed for about five hours Monday in a series of crashes leading to a 10-vehicle pileup. One wreck was caused by a motorist who drove around road closures to get onto the interstate.
    Five people were treated at a Jamestown hospital for injuries.
    In Minnesota, a fatal crash occurred about 11:30 a.m. A semi was westbound in the left land of I-94 as a Department of Transportation snowplow cleared the right lane. A motorist tried to drive between the vehicles, smashing into both.
    National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kaiser tells The Forum (http://bit.ly/Xorcq4 ) that while temperatures will be "raw" this week, he expects clear conditions.
