A fatal crash between a semi-truck and an SUV has left a woman dead, and closed Highway 65 in both directions in Blaine.

The crash happened around 4:30 a.m. at Hwy. 65 and 109th Avenue NE, closing the highway between 105th Avenue NE and Cloud Drive NE.

There are long backups in both directions as traffic is diverted. As of 6:30 a.m. there is no indication when the road will reopen.
