GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Freezing rain coated roads and led to crashes in northeast North Dakota early Friday. It was the second straight day of weather problems on Interstate 29 in the Dakotas.

The Highway Patrol issued a no-travel advisory for I-29 from Grand Forks north to Canada about 3:30 a.m. and lifted it about two hours later. Motorists still were advised to use caution in Grand Forks, Walsh and Pembina counties.

The patrol reports about two dozen crashes or instances of vehicles sliding into the ditch on I-29. One crash involved three semitrailers and a snowplow. It forced a two-hour closure of the northbound lanes. No serious injuries were reported.

On Thursday, dozens of people were rescued when more than 150 vehicles became stranded in a blizzard on I-29 in northeast South Dakota.
