MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An Edina teenager is dead after he was hit by a semi on Interstate 494 in South St. Paul.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the incident happened just before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday near Concord Street.

The state patrol says the victim — 19-year-old Samuel Oden of Edina — was on westbound I-494 for an unknown reason when he was struck by a semi.

Westbound traffic on I-494 was closed in that area, but it has since reopened.
