Two 18-Wheelers Collide on I-90
Lewiston, MN (KROC AM News) - A crash involving two semi-trucks shut down a section of I-90 in SE Minnesota Tuesday morning.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the driver of one of the rigs was in the right lane driving at a low speed because of the icy roadway. The other driver did not see the first truck in time to slow down and ran into its trailer. The driver of the second truck was identified as 25-year-old Jerald Lee of Oak Forest, Illinois. He was taken to Rochester St. Marys Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other driver - 60-year-old Dale Becker of Neshkoro, Wisc. - was not hurt.
The wreck happened around 6:00 AM in the westbound lanes of I-90 south of Lewiston and forced a detour until the trucks were taken away.
