Authorities say alcohol was a factor in a pair of Twin Cities crashes between 11:30 p.m. and 12:15 a.m. Saturday night into Sunday morning, though there were no fatalities in the incidents. 

A 29-year-old Minneapolis man survived after being ejected from the Honda Accord he was driving and ending up approximately 180 feet from the car the came to a rest on Interstate 94 in Brooklyn Center. 

The State Patrol crash report says the man was driving the Honda northbound on the I-94 ramp to westbound I-694 at a high rate of speed when he lost control, veered right, hit a guardrail and rolled. The 29-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to North Memorial Hospital for treatment. 

A 30-year-old Anoka man was a passenger in the vehicle. Unlike the driver, he was wearing his seatbelt. He sustained non-critical injuries and was also taken to North Memorial.

Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in different crash that caused delays on northbound Hwy. 61 in White Bear Lake late Saturday night. 

The State Patrol reports that a 44-year-old Hugo woman was driving a Chevy Equinox southbound in the northbound lanes of Hwy. 61 when she collided head-on with a car that was traveling the proper direction. 

A 20-year-old White Bear Lake man driving the Infinity Coupe that was struck by the wrong-way driver was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. 

The wrong-way driver was not injured.
