A truck accident occurred early this morning on the ramp from Interstate 290 to southbound Interstate 94.
Details on the accident are limited.
A dump truck flipped over on the ramp at approximately 1:18 a.m. According to police, the truck was moving too fast as it hit the curve on the ramp.
The truck’s contents, including drywall, construction, and garbage, was strewn across the ramp, which was closed as crews worked to clear off the ramp. The ramp was reopened at approximately 4:00 a.m.
No one was injured during the accident.
