6-car crash briefly closes down lanes of I-94 in St. Paul

Authorities closed westbound lanes of Interstate 94 on St. Paul’s East Side Tuesday night due to a six-vehicle crash.

The collision caused one car to roll over and resulted in a person being taken to the hospital with minor injuries, according to Minnesota State Patrol spokesman Lt. Gordon Shank.

The highway was shut down after 7:30 p.m. between White Bear Avenue and Highway 61 as crews cleared the crash site, but it has since opened.

A driver was cited for duty to drive with due care, Shank said.

The crash is under investigation.
