Driver Escapes Serious Injury In Overpass Plunge
LITTLE CANADA (AP) - A driver escaped serious injury when her pickup truck flew off an icy interstate overpass and onto a frozen pond below in a Twin Cities suburb.
Thick ice on the pond in Little Canada prevented the pickup from breaking through Tuesday. Fifty-four-year-old Anne Spiess, of Maplewood, was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Video from the Minnesota Department of Transportation shows the truck flying over a railing on the overpass before crashing below.
