Excessive winds blew dirt from nearby farms across the highway, creating conditions with zero visibility and resulting in a northbound crash and numerous southbound collisions, which collectively involved about 20 trucks or commercial vehicles and 40-60 passenger cars, according to police. The incident occurred at milepost 76 on Interstate 55, north of Farmersville in Montgomery County, and the road was closed in both directions from mileposts 63-80.
Authorities described the incident as creating conditions comparable to a whiteout snow event. They advised drivers who encounter a dust storm to put on their hazard lights and exit the road.
