Video shows an out of control semi tipping and sliding to a stop near a gas station in Taylors Falls on Monday.

A Minnesota State Patrol crash report said it happened at about 10:45 a.m. near the intersection of Highway 8 and Highway 95.


According to the report, the semi was headed west on Highway 8, coming down a hill from St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin into Minnesota when the driver said his brakes faded as he approached a red light.

The driver told authorities he swerved around traffic that was stopped and attempted to turn right onto Highway 95, but the semi rolled and slid into a pillar and signs near a Casey's General Store.

It's unclear if the driver suffered any injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
