Overturned Semi on 494 Causes Traffic Congestion

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - Highway 494 was closed for more than four hours during Tuesday's evening commute after a semi tipped over in the westbound lane at 35W.

All traffic was diverted to I-35W as the Minnesota State Patrol used airbags in an effort to lift up the semi.

Weather was not a factor in the crash.
