The driver of another vehicle involved in the crash was also transported to North Memorial. Injuries to that driver and the two in the other car are not considered life-threatening.

According to the release, preliminary investigation indicates one vehicle was traveling eastbound on Highway 55 when it collided with another heading westbound and turning left to go south on Xenium Lane. That vehicle settled between two additional vehicles which were traveling north on Xenium Lane/Northwest Boulevard.

The crash closed Highway 55 eastbound and the northbound lanes of Northwest Boulevard for a time.

The release said the incident remains under investigation.
