Car Accident Lawyers MN Semi Ran Red Light Hit Car


One person is in critical condition after a crash in Eagan Monday morning, according to news reports. Just after 11:30 a.m., Eagan officers responded to a collision at Cliff Road and Pilot Knob Road. A preliminary investigation revealed a semi was traveling west on Cliff Road and ran a red light, striking the SUV on its left side, authorities said.

After hitting the SUV, the semi rolled on its side and spilled a large amount of sand into the roadway, according to police. Pilot Knob Road and Cliff Road were closed for approximately four hours while the Minnesota State Patrol completed a crash reconstruction. The factors leading up to the crash remain under investigation.
