A 45-year-old woman was rescued by a good Samaritan Monday afternoon after her car went off the road and plunged into a holding pond in the northwest Twin Cities metro, according to police. Rogers Police said the incident happened just after 4 p.m. Monday on eastbound Interstate 94 near Highway 241 between Rogers and St. Michael.
The underpass of Highway 36 on Fairview Avenue in Roseville is temporarily closed due to flooding after a sudden downpour late Saturday afternoon. According to WCCO Radio’s Edgar Linares, a car was submerged on Fairview Avenue in waist-deep water. “Police are on both sides of the underpass stopping cars from going in there,” Linares said. “It doesn’t look like any one is inside the car. There’s some people standing off to the side, but they’re not letting anyone go through that particular section of the road.”
