A Mound woman and her son, along with the son's friend, were killed Friday in an accident involving a car and two semitrailer trucks south of the Twin Cities.

The State Patrol said the victims, all of whom were in the car, are: driver Jayson Ceaser, 20, of Minnetonka, and passengers Tamara Ceaser, 46, of Mound, and Nicholle Oseland, 22, of Mound.

Tamara Ceaser and Jayson Ceaser are mother and son; Oseland is a friend of Jayson Ceaser's, the State Patrol said.

The State Patrol said the crash occurred about 2:15 a.m. on Interstate 35 in the Lakeville-New Market area.

The victims were driving north near milepost 79 when their car hit the rear of a semitrailer truck.

Authorities said Jayson Ceaser lost control and veered into the median and crossed over into the southbound lane, where the car was hit by another truck.

The drivers of both trucks were uninjured, the State Patrol said.

Authorities closed a 5-mile stretch of the highway between Scott County Road 2 and Dakota County Road 70 for about four hours as investigators reconstructed the accident.

The freeway reopened about 6:30 a.m.
