The sloppy, slippery conditions are proving to be too much for some motorists today, as the state is being blasted by a wintery mix of snow and sleet.

On Highway 95 in North Branch, a semi-truck slid off the road and into the ditch about a quarter mile east of town.

The person driving the semi was able to crawl out of the vehicle, and was not injured, according to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office.

As of 10:30 a.m., that section of 95 was blocked off by authorities responding to the crash; a detour was set up for drivers to navigate around the accident.
