A woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 694 in Brooklyn Center Monday night, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The crash happened on the eastbound lanes of the interstate at Shingle Creek Parkway just before 8 p.m. The Minnesota State Patrol says 62-year-old Joann Rogers of Maple Grove was driving around traffic on the right hand shoulder. Troopers say that when she tried to cut back into the right lane at the last minute, she rear-ended a semi trailer.

I-694 eastbound was closed for about three hours Monday night.

No further details were immediately available.
