MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Three people suffered critical injuries Saturday after a two-car crash in Blaine, authorities said.

The Blaine Police Department said alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the crash.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. near the 9600 block of Radisson Road, police said.

A 38-year-old woman from Blaine was driving northbound in a Pontiac G6 when she crossed the median and drove into southbound traffic. The Pontiac collided with a Honda Civic, police said.

Alcohol consumption on the part of the 38-year-old woman may have contributed to the crash. The woman, who was the driver and lone occupant of the Pontiac, suffered critical injuries and was brought to the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) for treatment.

Both people in the Civic suffered critical injuries. The 35-year-old driver, who was from Blaine, was airlifted to HCMC. The 33-year-old female passenger was brought by ambulance to HCMC. Extraction was necessary to free both from the Civic.

The names of those involved are being withheld until their families are notified, police said.

The crash is still under investigation.
