21 October 2022

MINNEAPOLIS — Two crashes – at least one of them fatal – have closed down lanes of Interstate 35W near downtown Minneapolis Friday morning.

In the fatal accident, a motorist in a Dodge Durango was traveling northbound on the interstate approaching Johnson Street when the vehicle went off the road and rolled. It came to rest on the right-hand shoulder under Johnson Street.

There were two occupants in the vehicle – a 21-year-old driver and 39-year-old passenger both from Crystal. No further details have been released.

The crash left only one lane open. According to MnDOT, a motorist went through that lane and hit a MnDOT truck, with several injuries. No MnDOT worker was injured, however.

MnDOT says the road will be cleared soon. 

Details are limited, so check back as it develops.
