In a "you saw it first" moment, St. Michael Patch has images from an accident this morning on Minnesota Highway 241 near Marksmen Metals in St. Michael.
The accident, which involved a minivan and a small pickup, shut down the left lane on eastbound Highway 241 while Minnesota State Patrol officers and local first responders tended to the scene. The initial call was filed around 7:30 a.m.
An ambulance was on site. Patch is waiting for a complete report from the Minnesota State Highway Patrol about this incident.
Winter Storm Orko caused hundreds of accidents Sunday and Monday around the Twin Cities area. To the north and west, it did worse, completely shutting down Interstate 94 from Alexandria to the North Dakota border, and Highway 10 from the Lakes Area of Detroit Lakes to Moorhead.
