A crash involving a stalled vehicle on Interstate 35W northbound in Lino Lakes slowed traffic Thursday afternoon and closed that section of highway.

A stalled vehicle pulled over to the side of the road on 35W near Sunset Avenue was hit at about 3:30 p.m., said Lt. Eric Roeske, spokesman of the Minnesota State Patrol.

Two people in the vehicle and one person who was outside and working on the vehicle were transported to the hospital, Roeske said. One was airlifted.
