A Stacy couple was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Lexington Avenue in Ham Lake this morning, June 5.
A 33-year-old man from Maplewood is in critical condition at the Hennepin County Medical Center, according to Cmdr. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office.
Names are not being released at this time. The deceased were in their 70s.
Sommer said nobody witnessed the crash on Lexington Avenue near Lever Street, but a passerby saw the smashed up vehicles and called 911 at 8:30 a.m. June 5. The accident is still under investigation.
The Stacy man and woman were in a Ford sedan and pronounced dead at the scene. The Maplewood man had to be extricated by the Ham Lake Fire Department from the Toyota SUV he was driving.
The Blaine Police Department and sheriff’s office also responded and had to put out a fire under the Toyota’s vehicle hood, but the fire itself did not get inside the vehicle, Sommer said.
A construction zone is nearby, but not in this area, he said.
The road was open to traffic and the roads were wet because of the rain, but otherwise the road conditions were good, Sommer said.
