Authorities say it's best to stay in your vehicle if you are involved in a wreck on the freeway. The driver of one of the cars involved in a crash on westbound 494 at Nicollet Avenue isn't following that advice. Let's hope this does not turn out bad.

Traffic is bad in the area. Delays begin near 12th Avenue. Plan on 10 extra minutes to reach Hwy. 100.

Earlier it was deer, now it's dogs running loose. Another report of a dog in traffic comes on Hwy. 610 at Noble Avenue in Brooklyn Park.  Look out for the little fella.

It's midday road work that started on southbound 35 at County Road 70 that's slowing traffic in Lakeville.  We've also got cones on eastbound 94 just past the 494/694 interchange in Woodbury.
