Northfield, MN (KROC-AM News) - The State Patrol says it has located the vehicle involved in a hit and run on I-35 in southern Minnesota early Monday.

The vehicle, a black 2006 Lincoln MKZ, struck and injured two tow truck operators who were working to remove the vehicle from the median along northbound I-35 just north of Northfield. The State Patrol yesterday issued an advisory asking for the public's assistance in locating the suspect vehicle.

The State Patrol did not indicate if the suspect driver has been identified. The agency says it remains an open and active investigation.

The tow truck operators, 39-year-old Michael Sirek and 23-year-old Parker Swanson, were taken to hospitals to be treated for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. The State Patrol says both men live in Faribault.
