The Minnesota State Patrol has identified the woman killed in a single car crash south of the metro Saturday morning.

Jordan Huver, 18, of Credit River Township, was killed in the rollover that happened around 3:30 a.m. on northbound I-35 near Elko, according to the state patrol.

She was a passenger in the vehicle driven by Tyler Henry, 29, of Lakeville. He suffered a non-life threatening injury.

Another passenger, Quinten Watkins, 26, of Lonsdale, was also hurt in the rollover.

The state patrol reports alcohol was detected on the driver and two passengers. At this point, it's unclear if that was the cause of the crash.

The Scott County and Dakota County Sheriff’s Offices are assisting the State Patrol with investigating the cause.

Roads were wet at the time of the crash.
