Craik RCMP are on the scene of two separate collisions four kilometres south of Davidson on Highway 11.
Three semis jackknifed Monday morning, blocking both northbound and southbound lanes.
A listener told 980 CJME and 650 CKOM a fuel truck hit another semi, which collided with another semi.
Other drivers said freezing rain played a big role. RCMP also noted the conditions as a factor in the incidents.
“Oh, it’s icy. There’s people falling on their butts as they’re walking around here,” said Les Groat, who was stuck in traffic on the highway Monday morning.
“People have to realize they gotta slow down when they see conditions like this. If there’s a truck parked on the side of the road, or a few of them, don’t go flying by. Sometimes there’s people walking around. It can get pretty hairy.”
Police are asking people to avoid the area if possible.
“As far as I can see back in my rearview mirror there’s traffic, so that’s about two or three kilometres,” said Glenn Wiome, who was heading north.
Vehicles are attempting to get around the pileup through the ditch, but are getting stuck.
