MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A driver was transported to the hospital after a semi truck crash involving two SUVs closed multiple lanes of traffic on Interstate 35E near Lone Oak Road in Eagan.
The Minnesota State Patrol said a SUV on I-35E and Yankee ran out of gas and stalled in the right lane. The driver got out of the vehicle and walked to the shoulder of the highway, leaving the vehicle unoccupied.
The semi apparently swerved to avoid the SUV, clipped the vehicle and sideswiped another SUV in the left lane.
The truck then went into the guardrail and the second SUV went into the median and rolled several times. The two lanes on the north side of 35E closed while officials could clear the area.
The driver of the second SUV was transported to the hospital in unknown condition.
One lane was also closed on the south side.
