The State Patrol said the northbound car struck an-other vehicle in the rear on Interstate 35 -- then crossed the median and continued into southbound traffic, where it was struck by a third vehi-cle.

The crash happened around 2:15 a.m. and forced the clos-ing of I-35 south of Lakeville, near the Dakota-Scott county line. The freeway was open again by mid-morning.

Roads were wet at the time. The State Patrol will recon-struct the accident as part of its investigation.
