Semi Truck Accident North of New Ulm

Posted: Updated:

A semi truck driver heading southbound on highway 15 just north of New Ulm lost control of his rig this morning on icy roads.

Minnesota State patrol says speed was not a factor in the single vehicle accident that happened around ten thirty this morning.

The truck and trailer went down the steep hill near a waterway and didn't get completely towed out until about four this afternoon.

The accident is being said to have been caused by the icy roads and a strong wind that pushed the trailer.
