It happened shortly after 2:00 Thursday morning. The State Patrol said the road was wet at the time of the rollover. 

First responders were dispatched to the crash along I-90 on Alden Township, which is about 12 miles west of Albert Lea. The state crash report indicates the semi was traveling east when the truck driver lost control and the truck rolled onto its side.


The truck driver, identified as 37-year-old Abdi Mohamed Dagane of Shakopee, was taken from the scene to an Albert Lea Hospital. He suffered what are being described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Thursday morning's crash was one of hundreds reported in a 12-hour span across Minnesota. Travel became difficult throughout the southern part of the state thanks to the first winter weather blast to hit the area in about a month.
