A semi-truck crashed around 6:40 a.m. Wednesday and overturned while entering the Lowry Tunnel. The Lowry Tunnel is Interstate 94 in Minneapolis. The driver was trapped beneath the wreckage and died at the scene.
After crashing in the westbound lanes, the trailer detached and jumped the median, blocking eastbound traffic and wedging a car beneath the trailer in the eastbound lane! Traffic is backed up for miles in both directions.
