Car accident Duluth MN:

Emergency crews responded to the crash at U.S. Highway 53 on the Interstate 35 northbound off-ramp and the Interstate 535 ramp to Wisconsin at 3:43 p.m.

According to Minnesota State Patrol spokesperson Sgt. Neil Dickenson, a semi was traveling south on Highway 53 and approaching a traffic light when it hit five vehicles that were either stopped at the light or just beginning to move forward when the light changed.

The tractor-trailer is suspected to have experienced brake failure and was unable to stop. But that hasn’t been confirmed.

Dickenson said four people were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. A child was taken by ambulance to a Duluth hospital, acting assistant chief of the Duluth Fire Department, Mark Herman said.

The State Patrol is investigating the crash and said the semi will be inspected for a possible equipment failure.
