MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Morning commuters on Interstate 94 in downtown Minneapolis endured a slow commute Wednesday morning after a crash near the Lowry tunnel involving a semi-truck.

Authorities responded to the crash just before 6 a.m. on I-94 near the Lowry tunnel. The Minnesota State Patrol said it involved a semi-truck and two vehicles, and no serious injuries were reported. Authorities said said a semi traveling westbound on I-94 went over the median and hit two cars that were headed eastbound.

The Minnesota State Patrol said lanes of eastbound I-94 were shut down while crews work to clear the semi-truck from the highway.

As of 9 a.m., the scene had cleared.

Authorities are still investigating what led up to the accident.
