The northbound lanes of Interstate 35E in Lino Lakes were closed for a few hours Tuesday morning following a rollover crash.
The State Patrol, in its incident report, says a 1999 Chevy Tahoe was traveling north on Interstate 35 when it struck a 2011 Chevy Silverado that was also traveling north. The Tahoe lost control and went into the ditch, then rolled, the report says.
A spokesperson with MnDOT told the Star Tribune at least one person was ejected from the vehicle, adding, "This one is pretty bad."
The driver of the Tahoe – an 18-year-old from Stacy – suffered a "serious injury" and was transported to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, the State Patrol's report says.
The other driver, a 49-year-old Vadnais Heights man, suffered no apparent injuries in the crash, the report notes.
The northbound lanes of the interstate were closed at Main Street from about 5 a.m. through around 8:30 a.m.

Both people inside the pick-up truck died. The Star Tribune says they were a 33-year-old man and his 23-year-old male passenger, both from Borup.
The 55-year-old driver of the beet truck suffered non-life threatening injuries.
