A rear-end collision on Interstate 94 early Friday afternoon clogged traffic briefly near downtown St. Paul, authorities said.

While St. Paul firefighters needed to extricate a passenger from a car, the State Patrol reported that there were no life-threatening injuries.

The wreck did cause "quite a traffic disruption until they got the lanes cleared," said Lt. Eric Roeske.
