BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have reopened the Interstate 29 southbound lanes two miles north of Bowesmont after a 12-vehicle pileup that included five semis and two Pembina County patrol cars.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the lanes were closed for 1½ hours Monday due to the wreck, which began with a semi-truck rear-ending a car at about 2 p.m. The highway became blocked when another semi struck a deputy’s car parked along the shoulder. The patrol says at least three people were injured.

A no travel advisory remains in effect for the northeastern part of the state due to icy road conditions and blowing snow. The conditions are causing areas of near zero visibility at times and hazardous driving conditions. Cities in advisory include Grand Forks, Cavalier, Drayton, Grafton and surrounding areas.
