EAGAN, MINNESOTA - The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating an injury accident that occurred on northbound I-35E near Yankee Doodle Road in Eagan, Minnesota just after 5:00 AM on Tuesday, March 14, 2023. A large emergency response was visible at the scene of the crash from MnDOT cameras. Early reports are saying that an officer needed to be extricated from their vehicle.

Eagan emergency personnel were able to get the officer out in a timely manner and canceled the mutual aid call from the Burnsville Fire Department.
