Semi crashes into Jeep on icy I-35

ALBERT LEA — A semi driver lost control in icy conditions Monday night on Interstate 35 at the interchange with Interstate 90 and struck a Jeep.

Both drivers walked away with no apparent injuries. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the men were wearing seat belts.

The State Patrol report says 54-year-old Bradley Adams of Pleasant Hill, Iowa, was driving a 2012 Kenworth northbound when he lost control and hit the rear bumper of a 1995 Jeep driven by 38-year-old Erick Abrego of Albert Lea.

The report says the Kenworth skidded across an on-ramp and rolled into the ditch, landing on its side and facing southbound. The crash happened at 9:17 p.m.

Both the semi and the Jeep were towed to Allen’s Tow-N-Travel in Albert Lea. The semi was totaled, while the Jeep sustained moderate damage, according to the State Patrol.

Assisting the State Patrol were the Albert Lea Police Department, Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office, Albert Lea Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance.
