Emergency responded to the scene of a car rollover on Interstate 35 near the Bong Bridge after 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.

Sgt. Curt Mowers with the Minnesota State Patrol said the accident happened when a semi truck switched and made contact with a car. It slowed traffic for about a half hour near 40th Avenue West.  

According to Mowers, the car lost control, struck the center barrier and rolled over. He said the driver of the car, a 76-year-old Proctor woman, had minor injuries and refused treatment. 

The truck driver is a 61-year-old man from Claresholm, Canada.
