Crews Remove Truck That Caused Minneapolis Airport Jam
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Traffic is moving normally again out of Minneapolis-St. Paul
International Airport after crews removed a truck that rolled over.
Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says crews removed the truck around
12:45 p.m. Wednesday, about four hours after it rolled over and caused a traffic
tie-up. The construction truck had a boom that had not been lowered when it
rolled over on the outbound roadway Wednesday morning.
Scovronski says crews had to drain the hydraulic liquid that was keeping the
boom in place and then bring in a tow truck to lift up the truck, which was
stuck on a concrete barrier.
She says the truck driver was alert and talking as he was taken to the
hospital, but his injuries and condition are unknown.
