JORDAN, Minn. (WCCO) — One person was killed in a rear-end crash in Jordan, Minn. on Monday night.

The Minnesota State Patrol said it happened on Highway 169 at the intersection with Highway 282 around 11 p.m.

The patrol said a Ford Super Duty truck was stopped at a green light on Highway 169 when a Volvo semi truck wasn’t able to stop in time and rear ended it.

The pick-up truck was then pushed into the ditch and landed upside down.

The State Patrol said one person died, but they haven’t released their identity or said which vehicle they were in.

    A pickup rear-ended a semi stopped at a light, but the patrol won’t comment on which vehicle got obliterated and flew into pieces into the ditch or say which vehicle the victim was in, eh?

    I think a casual observer of Blue’s Clues could figure this one out…

    1. Joe Senseless says:

      You must not be a casual observer or reader. It says the semi rear ended the truck…

  2. Heather says:

    The written version of the story is incorrect. The video clip has the correct information. The pickup did in fact rear end the semi.
    Maybe Joe Senseless shouldnt be so senseless about his comments and get his information correct before he makes comments on other peoples comments.

      I would like to add that my heart and prayers go out to the family of the man killed. He is listed as a 34 year old from Belle Plaine, MN.

    The clip shows the semi with front end damage and the pickup in the ditch

  4. Heather says:

    The story here does not match some of the other stories in Pioneer Press and Shakopee Valley News. I would say that Sarah has shown the best form of observation and actually looked at the evidence on the clip. Thanks Sarah for showing us what really happened 🙂

    As a friend of the victim of this crash, I will correct this story and say that the pick-up truck was rear ended by the semi, not the other way around. I know the family would appreciate a correction aired from WCCO.

    Kellie has it correct, father of 4 hit by 79 yr old semi driver. Why we driving semi’s at this age on Monday’s after 11PM? How do we know the light was green again?
