MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Authorities are cleaning up the site of a fatal accident inside an Interstate 94 tunnel through downtown Minneapolis, but the westbound side of the tunnel has reopened.

A semi hauling used auto parts overturned inside the Lowry Hill tunnel just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday. The State Patrol says the truck was heading west on I-94 when it struck a light pole and rolled, spilling debris into the eastbound lanes and trapping the truck driver underneath his vehicle.
