Four dead in three crashes on a clear-weathered Tuesday morning

The carnage started by the State Fairgrounds in Falcon Heights with a head-on crash early Tuesday. Then came a morning rush-hour rollover on the Mendota Bridge that snarled traffic for a couple of hours. That was followed by a crash in which a semitrailer truck hit a pedestrian, causing a 90-minute shutdown of a downtown Minneapolis freeway.

In fewer than eight hours: three crashes, four deaths.

“That’s unusual,” said Lt. Tiffani Nielson of the State Patrol. “Over a long weekend, we might have four to five and we’d consider that high.”
