Authorities are on the scene of a fatal crash that has shut down part of Hwy. 55 in Inver Grove Heights Wednesday morning. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says westbound Hwy. 55 is closed at Argenta Trail and will be for an extended period of time. 

It's unclear how many vehicles and people were involved in the crash, which KSTP's Josie Smith reports is a rollover crash. 

According to MnDOT, the closure also restricts access to westbound Hwy. 55 from Robert Street/Hwy. 3.
