State Patrol investigating fatal crash on Highway 169 in Plymouth
At least one person is dead following a crash involving three vehicles, including a box truck, early Sunday evening in Plymouth.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash happened around 5:12 p.m. on southbound Highway 169 just north of the interchange with Highway 55. The crash temporarily shut down southbound traffic around the crash site for several hours Sunday.
A crash report states traffic was slowing down ahead of the box truck due to a separate crash when it hit a Nissan Altima from behind and pushed it into a Chevrolet Tahoe.
The driver of the Altima, 40-year-old Cristina Maria Restrepo, was killed in the crash.
According to the incident report, the Tahoe’s driver and passenger both had non-life-threatening injuries, as did the driver of the Ford Econoline.
