I-35W reopens in Bloomington after man was hit

Interstate 35W at 90th Street in Bloomington was closed for hours after a man was hit on the highway on Monday morning. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, just after 6 a.m., a 39-year-old man crossed the interstate, and went up the hill leading to 90th Street. 

Minutes later, the man attempted to cross the interstate again when he was struck by a 39-year-old woman driving a Ford Explorer, law enforcement said. MnDOT traffic cameras show the driver of the Ford Explorer pulled over after the crash. 

The 39-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the incident, authorities say.
