(ABC 6 News) -- On Saturday, a 4-vehicle crash involving 3 motorcycles and a pickup truck delayed travelers on Highway 247, 2 miles east of Highway 63 in Farmington Township. Minnesota State Patrol said the pickup truck was traveling westbound on Highway 247 when it crossed over onto the eastbound lane.  In the meantime, 3 Harley Davidson motorcycles traveling eastbound on the same highway when the pickup truck crossed the median, laid down their bikes to avoid a head-on collision with the pick-up truck.

Witnesses told ABC 6 News that Mayo One helicopter took at least one victim and that they saw "a lady kneeling near a body maybe performing CPR."
