Blaine, MN (KROC AM News) - A traffic camera recorded a crash in the Twin Cities metro Monday that could have been much worse than it was.

It happened around 2:30 pm on the Highway 10 bridge over Highway 65 in Blaine.

The video of the wreck shows the driver of a car that appeared to be speeding lose control as it was about to enter Highway 10 and crash into a cargo truck.

Authorities said there were no serious injuries. Reports indicate the driver of the car may have been impaired.
