The Highway 101 bridge in Shakopee is open to traffic again after being closed in both directions during Wednesday morning’s rush hour due to a serious one-vehicle crash.

Multiple people were injured when an SUV lost its wheel, went off the road and crashed. A woman and one child were airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center while an adult male and two other children were transported to St. Francis Hospital via ambulance.

State Patrol spokesman Lt. Eric Roeske says one of the victims was a child who was ejected from a vehicle and thrown onto the ice of a nearby pond. There are reports that the child may have also struck a tree.
