Sugar beets that spilled from a truck on Hwy. 12 west of Murdock, Minn., Wednesday evening caused the highway to be closed for a short time.

A western Minnesota highway was shut down for a short time Wednesday night after a truck carrying sugar beets spilled its load and thousands of the yellow-colored vegetables froze to the pavement.

"They were like rocks," said Swift County Sheriff John Holtz.

The spill happened about 8 p.m. on Hwy. 12 west of Murdock, Minn., and the beets littered the road for about half a mile, Holtz said. Murdock is about 20 miles northwest of Willmar.
