A stretch of Hwy 56 closes due to semi rollover near Randolph

(ABC 6 News) – A stretch of Minnesota State Highway 56 has closed due to a semi rollover, according to Minnesota State Patrol Sgt. Troy Christianson.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) says the closure is between Minnesota State Highway 19 just north of Stanton and 292nd St. E. in Randolph.

Christianson said the highway will be closed in both directions until the crash is cleared up which could take several hours. A detour has been setup. There are no injuries in the crash.

Light freezing rain that moved through parts of the area overnight and early Wednesday morning was enough to coat some highways with ice leading to crashes and spinouts.
