One person was killed Saturday night in a fiery one-vehicle crash at a new Metro Transit station at northbound Interstate 35W and Lake Street.
State patrol initially reported two deaths, but officials confirmed Sunday that the driver was the only occupant of the vehicle who died in the crash. No other injuries were reported.
A witness said that about 8 p.m., the car went up the bus exit from northbound 35W, smashed into the station and caught fire, as did the shelter. Minneapolis firefighters extinguished the crash, and the station appeared to suffer minimal damage.
