A Twin Cities man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by multiple vehicles on Hwy. 169 just before 5 a.m. Wednesday. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says a 61-year-old man from Crystal was headed south on Hwy. 169 when his Ford F150 struck a bridge near Excelsior Boulevard in Hopkins.

The truck stalled and wound up facing the wrong direction on the right shoulder. 

The man got out of his truck, at which point he was hit by a Chevy Impala. The collision launched him into the left lane of the highway and he was struck by four more vehicles, the crash report says. 

Allina Ambulance transported the man to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment. His current condition is unknown. 

Road conditions were slippery from snow and ice at the time of the crash.
