The intersection near the site of a St. Louis Park crash that claimed the lives of two children has seen 18 crashes from 2010-2012, including one last year in which another vehicle went into the same storm water pond. Minnesota Department of Transportation spokeswoman Bobbie Dahlke says the figure is “relatively low” for an intersection with signals. She says the crash figure includes the whole intersection, not just the ramp where a 23-year-old woman veered into the pond Thursday. Five children were with Marion Guerrido when the car became submerged. Authorities say two died, while three remained hospitalized.
A man is dead and a 4-year-old child is seriously injured after a truck crashed into a school bus Friday morning in southwestern Minnesota, the state patrol said. According to the patrol, the two vehicles collided in an intersection, as the truck was traveling northbound on 90th Street, and the bus was going north on 20th Avenue.
