MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A milk tanker rollover north of the Twin Cities Tuesday morning was captured on traffic cams.

Minnesota Department of Transportation cameras show the semi exiting from Highway 10 at around 8:30 a.m. and rolling on the exit ramp to Interstate 35W, near the border of Mounds View and Shoreview.

After rolling into the ditch, milk can be seen spilling from the tanker. Someone is seen approaching the tanker but then backing off as steam or smoke rises from the tanker.
