MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A four-vehicle crash near Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has left one person dead and eight others injured.

Authorities say a sport utility vehicle veered into oncoming traffic late Thursday morning, struck another SUV head-on, and then collided with two more vehicles.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a Chevrolet Suburban was heading south on Highway 5 when it crossed the median and collided with a northbound Lincoln Navigator. The Suburban then hit a minivan and a car.

A passenger in the Suburban was killed. His name has not been released, but State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske says he is a 30-year-old man.

All four drivers were injured as well as four passengers. Their injuries are considered minor or non-life-threatening. Road conditions were dry.
