There's major disruption at Highway 52 and Interstate 94 near downtown St. Paul after a semi crash on Wednesday afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says that multiple lanes and ramps are blocked at the intersection following the crash.

The semi hauling crushed vehicles rolled over, with several of the crushed vehicles then spilling out onto the roadway.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says that Hwy. 52 has been reduced to one lane between I-94 and Plato Boulevard.

It's likely to remain that way till 3:30 p.m. at least.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
