A driver was killed and a child in a car safety seat was ejected in a two-car collision this morning on Interstate Hwy. 35E near Yankee Doodle Road in Eagan.
The accident occurred at about 7 a.m. when the driver of a Suzuki Grand Vitara lost control of the vehicle on southbound I-35E, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The vehicle crossed the median and went into the northbound lanes where it was hit broadside by a Jeep Wrangler.
The driver of the Suzuki was killed. A child in a car seat was thrown from the car. As of about 12:30 p.m. today, there was no new information about the child's condition, a state patrol spokesman said.
The driver of the Jeep, a 40-year-old man from Eagan, had injuries that are not life threatening, the state patrol said.
The Suzuki was totaled. The Jeep had severe damage.
