Hwy. 55 was reopened late Tuesday after being closed in both directions for more than two hours as the Minnesota State Patrol investigated a fatal crash at the highway's intersection with Hennepin County Road 10, in Rockford.
According to the patrol, a Monte Carlo was stopped at a stop sign on a frontage road east of County Road 50, waiting to turn east onto Hwy. 55. As it merged into the eastbound lane of 55, the Monte Carlo made contact with a Jeep Wrangler, causing the Jeep to roll several times into a ditch.
The crash happened at 5:44 p.m., the patrol said.
As of midnight, the patrol had not yet released any further information about the crash, including how many people might have been killed or injured, or how many were involved in the crash.
