Drugs suspected in crash that kills 1, injures 3 in Inver Grove Heights

A Minneapolis man was killed in the crash.

A 29-year-old passenger was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Inver Grove Heights on Friday night. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am occupied by three people was westbound on Hwy. 62 when it, as the report says, "allegedly" came to a stop in the right lane near Robert Trail in Inver Grove Heights. 

Stopped in the lane, the car was hit from behind by a 2016 Dodge Ram.

Ahmed Ibrahim Ahmed, 29, of Minneapolis, died from his injuries after being transported to Regions Hospital for care. Ahmed was a passenger in the Grand Am. 

The driver and another passenger of the car suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Regions Hospital. 

A 37-year-old Brooklyn Center man driving the Dodge Ram was also taken to Regions Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The State Patrol says drugs are suspected to have played a role in the crash.
