Traffic was backed up for at least a mile following a car and commercial vehicle accident on Highway 7 and County Road 101 just before 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
Westbound Highway 7 was closed between Williston Road and County Road 101 for over an hour. It reopened at 5:50 p.m.
Two vehicles were involved in the crash and both drivers were sent to the hospital, said Shelley Petersen, a representative of the Minnetonka Police Department.
Mark Greenspan, of Minnetonka, was driving home from work when he was re-routed from Highway 7 to Delton Avenue.
"I have been on Delton for a half hour," said Greenspan. "The accident didn't look too good, and I hope the people involved are ok."
No word yet on the cause of the accident. Minnetonka Police and the Minnesota State Patrol were conducting accident reconstruction.
