The State Patrol has identified the person killed in the crash as Andrew Steven Russ, 33, of Woodbury. Russ was driving a 2015 Nissan A2S that was rear-ended by a semi. 

Original story

A four-vehicle crash on Interstate 94 in Woodbury was fatal early Thursday morning. 

The Minnesota State Patrol hasn't released the number of victims in the crash, only saying the 6:55 a.m. pileup in the westbound lanes of I-94 at Radio Drive was fatal. 

The crash report says the vehicles were slowing for traffic when a semi rear-ended a Nissan, pushing it into an Equinox and then forward into a Lexus. All four vehicles came to a stop on the right shoulder. 

Drivers involved were: 

  • 28-year-old Marinette, Wisconsin, man driving the semi. 
  • 33-year-old Woodbury man driving the 2015 Nissan A2S.
  • 39-year-old Woodbury woman driving the 2014 Chevy Equinox. 
  • 51-year-old Woodbury woman driving the 2014 Lexus RX 350. 

More information will be released later Thursday.
