(KNSI) - A St. Cloud woman was hurt when she spun out and crashed into a semi on an icy interstate.

The Minnesota State Patrol says at 2:46 a.m. (Thursday) 32-year-old Nicole Ann Shelton was headed west on Interstate 94 when she lost control of the car just east of Opportunity Drive.

Shelton's Chrysler 300 spun out and struck a semi that was also westbound.

She then went off the road and crashed into a sign.

Shelton was taken to St. Cloud Hospital with injuries that weren't life threatening.

The semi driver, 35-year-old Daniel William Wieman of Owatonna, wasn't hurt.

Troopers say the road was icy at the time of the crash.

Falling temperatures caused moisture to freeze to roads in the St. Cloud area leading to slick driving conditions.
