ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. — A semi-truck lost its load while driving on Highway 100 and Interstate 394 in the west metro Wednesday night - causing a chain reaction crash.
Crews closed the northbound lanes of Highway 100 for several hours Wednesday to clean up the wood and metal that covered the road.
Traffic cam video shows the semi-truck driving onto Highway 100 when its load falls off the back causing a car to veer over and hit the semi.
Authorities say the semi driver was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
This is a developing story. KARE 11 will provide more details as new information becomes available.
