MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Here’s a look at the four things you need to know for Sunday, March 12, 2017.

Number One: Fatal Crash Near MOA

One woman died Saturday after a police pursuit ended in a crash near Mall of America.

The Minnesota State Patrol says Bloomington police tried to pull over a Saturn Saturday for driving carelessly while speeding.

That’s when the driver of the Saturn sped off and ran a red light, hitting another vehicle.

A 24-year-old Rockford woman, riding in the Saturn, was killed.

The State Patrol says the 27-year-old driver, a Blaine man, could be charged with criminal vehicular homicide, felony fleeing police in motor vehicle, and possession of stolen car.

Number Two: Fatal Crash In Chisago Co.

The State Patrol says a wrong-way driver is to blame for a deadly crash Saturday on southbound Interstate 35 in Chisago County.

The State Patrol says a Chevy Equinox going northbound in the southbound lanes slammed head-on into a Ford Fusion.

The Fusion then caught fire.

The interstate was closed for several hours.

Number Three: Springin’ Forward

  1. Just a month ago I passed someone driving Northbound on the I-35 Southbound lane, just south of Hinckley – it may have even been in Chisago county.
