A man was killed in a non-crash related incident in Oakdale Saturday afternoon.
According to the State Patrol, the incident occurred on Interstate 694 southbound at 4th Street at 12:36 p.m.
Authorities say a semi-truck was on the interstate, driven by 26-year-old Nelson Masse, when he braked, causing a load of steel beams to shift into the cab of the semi-truck.
As a result, the driver was killed by the weight and force of the beams. No other vehicles were involved.
The State Patrol is investigating.
