The Highway Patrol says it's finished its investigation into the 100-car pileup, which began after a semi jack-knifed on the road. The semi was pulling an empty trailer and high winds caused the driver to lose control.

Nearly 40 accidents followed, involving multiple-vehicles on glare ice in near-zero visibility. A Walcott man died from injuries he suffered in the pile-up and that report will be forwarded to Cass County prosecutors.

4 others were injured.
