Search for semi truck driver following crash with Minnesota trooper

The Minnesota State Patrol is asking for help in finding a semi truck driver who hit a trooper's squad car in an apparent hit-and-run crash during Wednesday night's snowfall.

The crash happened on westbound I-94 at Mounds Boulevard around 9:25 p.m. The trooper was responding to several crashed vehicles. As the trooper pulled up behind the vehicles, the semi sideswiped the trooper's car. The squad car's emergency lights were on at the time.

The trooper was not injured in the crash.

The semi is red and has damage on the front passenger side. The driver is believed to be a man about 50 to 60 years old.

Anyone with information or possible additional dash cam footage is asked to contact the East Metro dispatch at (651)582-1509.

The case is still under investigation.
