2 P.M. UPDATE

The State Patrol says six vehicles were involved in the serious injury crash that closed Hwy. 55 in Rosemount Thursday morning. 

The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. when a semi-trailer traveling east on Hwy. 55 attempted to turn left onto Doyle Path. There were three vehicles slowing behind the turning semi when a dump truck rear-ended a Toyota Camry that was among the slowing cars. 

After the collision, the dump truck fishtailed into the westbound lane and forced a Dodge Ram driver to swerve to avoid a head-on crash. The dump truck then sideswiped the semi and wound up in the south ditch. 

None of the drivers in the vehicles mentioned above were hurt, but two women who were driving the two other vehicles that were slowing for the semi were injured. 

A 31-year-old St. Paul woman driving a 2008 Infiniti G35 was taken to Regions Hospital with life-threatening injuries, and a 35-year-old Eagan woman driving a Hyundai Santa Fe suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Ridges Hopsital. 

As of 2 p.m. the highway remained closed between County Road 42 and Pine Bend Trail.
