Not Going Anywhere?

A semi-trailer headed eastbound on Interstate 94 drove off the road onto a pond near Monticello this morning, then broke through the thin ice and sank.

State Patrol spokesman Eric Roeske said that the driver escaped with minor injuries after driving through a break in oncoming traffic after crossing the interstate median.

The accident happened just after 6 AM this morning, on the western end of the Minnesota Department of Transportation's test facility on I-94.

Roeske said arrangements are underway to get the truck winched out of the water.

Re: Not Going Anywhere?

There ought to be an understanding that if truckers want us to keep our boats off the highways, they'd better....
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

He probably watched too many episodes of "Ice Road Truckers".
