A portion of Midway Road was closed due to an accident near St. Louis River Road on Friday morning as crews worked to clear the scene.  WDIO photographer was in the area and said the St. Louis County Sheriff's office blocked a portion of Midway Road about a half mile from St. Louis River Road.


Two vehicles were towed from the scene.  Our photographer said visibility was low due to fog in the area when he arrived, but it is not clear whether fog played a role in the accident.

Traffic was moving again a short time later.  The Hermantown Fire and Police Departments responded to the incident, as well as a Mayo Clinic ambulance. No word on whether anyone was injured in the accident.

This is a developing story and we will add more details as they become available.
