Serious crash causes hours-long closure on Hwy. 212

The incident happened between Norwood Young America and Cologne.

A serious crash has closed Highway 212 southwest of the Twin Cities.

The Carver County Sheriff's Office announced just after 12:30 p.m. that the road would be closed between Norwood Young America and County Road 51 following the crash.

The closure will be in place until police have completed their investigation, which the MnDOT 511 service says could see the highway closed until as late as 4 p.m.

There is no word yet on the number of vehicles involved, or the severity of any injuries.
