MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A four-vehicle crash Friday evening in St. Paul created a significant traffic backup on westbound Interstate 94.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash happened around 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of Prior Avenue on the capital city’s west side. Troopers say at least one person was hurt in the crash, although not seriously.

The crash prompted a major backup on westbound I-94 as crews worked the scene. At one point, traffic was bumper-to-bumper to Lexington Parkway.

Crews have since cleared the scene.
