Update: Crash in Lowry Tunnel cleared after snarling traffic


A crash in Minneapolis' Lowry Tunnel around 7 a.m. resulted in a cramped morning commute for rush hour drivers.

The accident involved four cars, and happened on the westbound side of the tunnel, according to multiple tweets.

That side of the tunnel was reduced to one lane for about an hour, but just before 8 a.m. MnDOT said the area had been cleared and pronounced the incident as over.

The Star Tribune tweeted things were still backed up however.

You can see poor traffic conditions on northbound 35W all the way back to about 46th Street, and through the 94/Lowry Tunnel curve as well.

It's unclear at this point whether anyone was injured, or how seriously.
