Construction worker killed, another injured along I-94

ROGERS, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrol says a construction worker has been killed and another injured along the interstate in Rogers, a city northwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The patrol says a pickup truck was eastbound on Interstate 94 Tuesday afternoon when it was struck from behind by a semi. The pickup spun into a construction lane, hitting the workers Vernon Hedquist and Thomas Wood.

Authorities say Hedquist was killed and Wood was injured. Wood’s condition wasn’t immediately known.
