'Serious crash' closes southbound I-35W at Forest Lake fork

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced that southbound Interstate 35W was closed shortly after 9 p.m. on Sunday night due to a serious crash at Exit 36 in Lino Lakes.

MnDOT did not disclose details of the crash that closed the interstate at County Road 14, describing it only as a "serious accident."

Officials estimated the roadway would remain closed until roughly 11 p.m. and urged motorists to avoid the area while emergency crews and investigators worked.

The roadway has since reopened.

The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the crash, and confirmed injuries did occur; however, the severity of those injuries and the number of victims affected was not immediately known.
