LAKEVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) — A semi truck crash in the south Twin Cities metro area held up traffic Thursday morning.

The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday. A truck crashed into a ditch along Interstate 35 in Lakeville. The crash was just south of the 210th Street exit, between exits 76 and 81.

The truck was reportedly hauling about 30,000 pounds of frozen food. Much of the food ended up in the ditch.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation and police officers waited until rush hour was over to close the stretch to clean up the mess.

    I hope the food spilled near the ‘feed my starving children’ building instead of the Lakeville ‘stop childhood obesity’ camp.

    Railex 5 day non-stop private coast-to-coast railway transport with state of the art quality controlled distribution centers and real-time GPS inventory tracking is the greener alternative to refrigerated trucking companies
