A series of 10 vehicle accidents closed the Highway 23 Bridge in St. Cloud Tuesday morning.

St. Cloud Police Lieutenant Jeff Oxton says officers responded to a multiple car accident near the center of Granite City Crossing Bridge at 6:53 a.m.

Their investigation shows 25-year-old Alberto Zamora of St. Cloud was driving a pickup heading westbound across the bridge and lost the control of his vehicle, crossed the median and hit a sedan driven by 55-year-old Lynn Marie Kampa of St. Cloud. Both were taken to St. Cloud Hospital.

Two other vehicles traveling eastbound struck each other as a result of the first accident. One of the drivers, 24-year-old Kelli Ann Mrozek of Waite Park, received serious injuries and was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital.

Oxton says another six other cars were involved in separate accidents due to the initial crash on the bridge. No injuries were reported in any of the other accidents. He adds the road conditions were very slippery at the time.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Hundreds of organic farmers in Minnesota are gathering to network and learn about the latest trends in their industry.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture says the majority of organic producers in the state live in Stearns County, so St. Cloud will again host the state's organic conference Friday and Saturday.

About 650 Minnesota farmers were certified organic in 2010. Agricultural officials say the popularity of organic food has grown steadily and that's attracted more producers.

Conference coordinator Cassie Dahl tells the St. Cloud Times some of the conference workshops will cater to new farmers hoping to break into the industry. She says established producers can learn more about pest control methods, organic food processing or tax and market planning.

Two St. Cloud Men Arrested And Face Charges of Distributing Crack Cocaine

Two St. Cloud men were arrested on charges of distributing crack cocaine in St. Cloud on Tuesday.

The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force arrested 22-year-old Martell Burson and 22-year-old Darius Jackson of St. Cloud in connection with the distribution of crack cocaine. A media release from the task force says they received information about Burson selling drugs at the Coborn's store located on Cooper Avenue South.

Undercover investigators set up an active surveillance of Burson and observed him conducting a sale. They saw him arriving at the store and selling a certain amount of the drug. He then got into a vehicle and left the scene, but investigators and a uniformed officer stopped the vehicle at the intersection of University Drive and Roosevelt Road. Five individuals were inside the vehicle at the time, all of whom were temporarily detained.

Burson was arrested on charges of 3rd degree sale of crack cocaine. Officers also detained Jackson under previous charges of possession of controlled substance. Both Burson and Jackson were booked to the Stearns County Jail. In addition to crack cocaine found in the vehicle, officers found a bag of crack cocaine hidden in the cavities of Burson’s body upon his arrival at the jail. He took out the bag and threw it striking the correctional officer. Police say Jackson also had crack cocaine on his body and faces additional charges of introducing contraband to a correctional facility.

Additional charges of 4th degree assault against a correctional officer, 1st degree possession of controlled substances and possible charges of bringing illegal drug to a correctional facility are expected against Burson. Jackson is facing charges of 3rd degree possession with purpose of selling crack cocaine and possible charges of introducing illegal drug to a correctional facility.

The St. Cloud Police Department K-9 unit assisted the Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force.
