Crash involving two semi-trucks closes I-94 near Albertville

All eastbound lanes were closed Thursday morning after one of those semis spilled a load of potatoes all over the interstate. The scene took hours to clear.

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota State troopers say a crash between two semi-trucks was the cause of a major traffic snarl on I-94 eastbound in the northwest metro Thursday morning.

One of the trucks lost its load of potatoes, closing eastbound lanes of the busy interstate at County Road 19 in the Albertville area. Other drivers hit the potatoes and other debris from the collision, disabling them as well.

Troopers say there were injuries in the accident, but none were believed to be life threatening.

Detours were in place through 9 a.m., as the bitterly cold weather slowed cleanup efforts.

Taking the exit for Highway 10 to Highway 101 in the Rogers area could help drivers get past the traffic snarl. Plan for extra time on your commute as this is one of the busiest stretches of interstate in the Twin Cities metro, and alternate routes may be congested as well.

It's easy to peel out on icy roads.

Since Minnesota wants to rival New York and California with their liberal policies, I'd say you reap what you sow. Enjoy your 3rd world country.

A truck accident causes an accidental spill of potatoes on the road and it’s (somehow) political?

Are you drunk?

Well, no. But it's Friday night. If you give me a few more hours, I can definitely accommodate you. What did you have in mind? Urinating on public holiday displays? Stealing and attempting to drive home in children's Power Wheels toys? General tomfoolery at the primary school playground that results in an EMT response?

I'm pretty much open to almost anything. Just let me know. Kay?
