When a crash involving 40 vehicles stopped traffic on Interstate 94 for six hours, many people had to find a place to spend the night. 

The manager of a nearby motel in Osseo says her 53 rooms were full Sunday night, with people stranded by the pileup taking the last 20.  The manager of Osseo's Super 8 says she gave customers a discount due to the situation.  She says she had to turn down five-to-eight customers because all her rooms were taken.
