ROSEVILLE, Minn — Highway 36 is open again after being closed in both directions for hours Tuesday morning as police cleaned up after an early-morning crash.
The State Patrol website says 30-year-old Trevor Scott May of St. Paul was driving a Kia Sorento westbound shortly before 3 a.m. when he exited Highway 36 via the Dale Street exit at a high rate of speed. Investigators say May sped through the intersection, and back onto the Highway 36 entrance ramp before hitting a grassy area, losing control and rolling the vehicle.
May was ejected during the crash, and was declared dead on the scene.
Traffic buildups were starting to form as morning commuters tried to pass along the normally busy road. Drivers were rerouted onto side streets to avoid the area cordoned off by officers.
At this point it is unclear if alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash. The State Patrol will continue investigating.
This is a developing situation, and KARE 11 will update this article as more information is made available.
