State Troopers responded to the wreck between the High Forrest and Dexter exits in Mower County shortly before 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. The crash report indicates the semi was traveling west when it left the roadway and rolled.
The trucker was identified as 37-year-old Ruben Martinez of San Antonio, Tx. He was brought to a hospital in Austin with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.
Troopers say the freeway had snow and ice on it at the time of the crash. Martinez was buckled and alcohol was not involved in the rollover, the report says. The Mower County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the crash.
See What Minnesota's License Plates Looked Like The Year You Were Born
Nothing beats a nostalgia trip. It's always fun to see how things looked the year you were born and how much they've changed throughout the years.
