WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (KMSP) - Two people were hurt in a car crash on an off-ramp from Interstate 35E to I-494 early Sunday morning, according to a release from the State Patrol.
The crash followed a police chase when a Honda Accord began going the wrong way on I-694 in White Bear Lake, officials said. An officer stopped the car once, noting that the driver appeared to be under the influence before he fled onto I-35E--heading once again in the wrong direction.
The male wrong-way driver struck another Accord on the off-ramp to I-494, seriously injuring himself and the 64-year-old driver of the other car.
He will be placed under under arrest after being released from the hospital, officials said. The incident remains under investigation.
