VIDEO: Car Plunges Off I-35E/I-694 Overpass Tuesday

A Maplewood driver plummeted off the Interstate 35E/Interstate 694 overpass Tuesday morning after losing control of her pickup on the icy ramp.

Anne M. Spiess, 54, was headed north on the I-35E ramp to I-694 in Little Canada when she lost control of her Ford Ranger, went over the railing and landed on the embankment below, according to the State Patrol.

Miraculously, Spiess’ only injuries were not life-threatening.

“This is why we're urging people to slow down, pay attention and watch out for icy bridges and ramps,” the Minnesota Department of Transportation wrote in a Facebook post. “The motorist walked away from this crash without serious injuries.”
