Buckle up! Heat wave in Minnesota causes highway to buckle and sends cars flying into the air

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has released a video that looks less like traffic camera footage and more like an episode of Duke of Hazard. A heatwave seems to have caused the road to buckle on Highway 36, with unsuspecting drivers unwittingly launching their cars in the air after driving over it. The footage was taken near Edgerton Street on the border of Little Canada and St. Paul, KHOU reported. According to drivers in the area posting on Reddit, the buckle was about 1.5 to 2 feet tall. The speed limit in the area is 55 miles per hour, however locals say that most drivers travel at about 65 or 70 miles per hour. The Twin Cities had a few days at the end of last week that were in the 90s, which was likely why the road came up while it did. Officials at the Minnesota Department of Transportation say they have since had the road repaired.
