Police are seeking witnesses to a multiple-vehicle crash on Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids that injured several drivers and snarled traffic during Wednesday evening’s commute.
Westbound lanes of Hwy. 10 were closed for several hours after a 3:45 p.m. pileup near Round Lake Boulevard overturned one vehicle and split it completely in half.
At least three vehicles were involved, and three women were taken to area hospitals, authorities said. The extent of their injuries was unknown late Wednesday.
Scanner traffic captured by the MN Police Clips website indicates that one woman was trapped inside the overturned sedan before rescuers arrived.
The highway was reopened around 8:30 p.m. after investigators performed a crash reconstruction and cleared wreckage from the roadway. The crash remains under investigation.
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Detective Dave Westberg at 763-767-6417.
