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.
