Wide spread flooding affected the northern and southern parts of the state after heavy rains on Monday and Tuesday. It led to a daring car rescue. Julisa Jones said she was terrified. She was on her way home to Anoka, Minn. from Sioux Falls, S.D. when the road she was on was covered with water that was rising fast.
The Minnesota State Patrol says a state trooper plucked a woman from her car after rapidly rising water flooded Interstate 90 and stranded her car in the southwest corner of the state near the South Dakota border. The Patrol says the water was over the driver’s seat when she called 911 around 9:15 p.m. Monday.
Officials say Highway Patrol troopers from South Dakota and Minnesota have made 188 arrests and issued 522 warnings during a joint enforcement operation on a stretch of Interstate 90.
The 49-year-old woman who received no fewer than four speeding tickets last week after flying down on I-90 as fast as 112 mph has been identified.
A 49-year-old woman from Alabama got not one, not two, not three, but four speeding tickets on Friday after flying down on I-90 as fast as 112 mph, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
