First responders attend to a crash scene on Highway 62 at 34th Ave. Monday, March 27, 2023 in Minneapolis.

Authorities report that alcohol was a contributing factor in a fatal crash that left part of Crosstown Hwy. 62 closed for much of the Monday morning rush hour.

The driver of a pickup truck towing a trailer left the eastbound lanes of Hwy. 62 near 34th Avenue about 3:25 a.m., entered a ditch and struck a concrete bridge pillar, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

The man, identified as 34-year-old Brian Cravey of Wills Point, Texas, had been drinking, the patrol's report said. Cravey was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and was in critical condition as of late Monday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.
