One person was killed in an early-morning crash Wednesday on Interstate 35 near Northfield that closed the northbound lanes and rerouted traffic during the morning commute. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a Chevrolet Silverado pulling a camper was southbound on I-35, lost control and crossed into the northbound lanes of traffic, blocking the road about 5:04 a.m.

A northbound Chevrolet Cruze driven by a 44-year-old Lonsdale man struck the back of the camper, the report says. The identity of the individual killed will be released later Wednesday, the report says.

Another vehicle, a Ford Focus driven by a 27-year-old Owatonna man, also struck the camper and came to rest against a guard rail. 

Neither the driver of the Focus, nor either person in the Silverado, were injured. 

None of the vehicles' airbags deployed, according to the report.
