Tractor-trailer Rollover South of Edina

On Tuesday, June 2, 2015, a Coca-Cola tractor-trailer overturned four-and-a-half miles south of Edina on State Highway 15 at approximately 12:30 p.m.

According to the driver, Tyler Moore, 26, of Quincy, IL, he was heading north toward Edina when he closed his eyes for a second and the next thing he knew he was off of the road.

Moore was not injured in the crash but found himself trapped inside the cab of the tractor-trailer after it came to rest on its side.
