Truck jackknifes in Lowry Tunnel.

MnDOT cameras caught a harrowing accident inside the Lowry Tunnel in Minneapolis this weekend.

On Saturday, after rain had made the roads slick, a semi truck jackknifed inside the tunnel on the eastbound lanes of the I-94. 

As the video shows, the incident brought traffic to a standstill, though luckily no injuries were reported.

Per KARE 11, the truck's fuel tank sustained a small puncture, which fire and hazmat crews patched up in order to prevent leakage.

Traffic was closed off at the tunnel while crews responded to the accident.
