There were major delays on I-94 in Minneapolis Wednesday morning after a semi-trailer crashed in the Lowry Hill tunnel, leaving drywall dumped over the interstate.

The incident happened just after 7:30 a.m., with the semi spilling its load across two of the eastbound lanes.

The Minnesota State Patrol described the debris as a "large amount of drywall," with traffic reduced to a single lane as recovery teams cleared up the crash.

All lanes were eventually reopened just before 9:30 a.m., with the crash now under investigation.
