A Minnesota State Patrol squad was hit after a vehicle lost control causing a chain reaction crash on I-94.
The trooper was on the shoulder of I-94 near Plymouth Avenue with its emergency lights on when a southbound Dodge Durango with a 24-year-old driver and 18-year-old passenger spun out and struck a southbound Mercury Grand Marquis with a 54-year-old driver. The Mercury slid backwards across all lanes of traffic and ultimately hit the trooper's vehicle.
The trooper was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
