Winter storms continue to wreak havoc in South Dakota, causing multiple accidents across the state.
According to the South Dakota 511 website, most of the roads in the eastern part of the state are snow-covered, leading to cars and trucks sliding into ditches.
The authorities are urging people to stay home if possible, and if they must drive, to buckle up, drive slowly, and keep a safe distance between vehicles.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol is responding to several accidents, including a crash involving a semi and a trooper vehicle on I-90 near Hartford.
The trooper was providing traffic control for another crash when the semi lost control and crashed into the vehicle.
Fortunately, there were only minor injuries.
Another jackknifed semi was also blocking both eastbound lanes of I-90 near Brandon this afternoon.
The winter storms are bringing heavy, wet snow, rain, and strong winds, making driving conditions treacherous.
The Department of Transportation cameras show the snow and ice covering the highways and interstates.
