MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Traffic is moving normally again out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after crews removed a truck that rolled over.

Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says crews removed the truck around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, about four hours after it rolled over and caused a traffic tie-up. The construction truck had a boom that had not been lowered when it rolled over on the outbound roadway Wednesday morning.

Scovronski says crews had to drain the hydraulic liquid that was keeping the boom in place and then bring in a tow truck to lift up the truck, which was stuck on a concrete barrier.

She says the truck driver was alert and talking as he was taken to the hospital, but his injuries and condition are unknown.
