Semi crashes through elementary
school wall in Minnesota
LYLE, Minn. (AP) — A semitrailer truck veered off a highway and crashed through the wall of an elementary school in southern Minnesota, injuring four people including two children in a classroom.
School officials in Lyle, next to the Iowa border, say the semi rear-ended another vehicle on Highway 218 about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, then careered off the highway and crashed into the school with its cab landing inside the walls. The highway is about 100 yards (90 meters) from the school.
Two students, along with the driver and a child passenger in the vehicle hit by the semi were injured. There has been no information released on the conditions of the injured.
Minneapolis improves connectivity
to prepare for Super Bowl
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis has the signal strength, data speed and reliability to handle the onslaught of service demands that come with hosting a Super Bowl, according to a wireless coverage mapping company.
OpenSignal said the metro area has been performing well in similar studies for years, KSTP-TV reported .
“Our city is the Midwest’s premier tech hub and quickly becoming a serious player nationally,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said. “To keep that momentum trucking and continue recruiting top talent, we’ll need a 21st century communication infrastructure — and these investments will help make sure that we have one.”
Efforts to improve connectivity in preparation for the Super Bowl began more than a year ago.
