Esme’s Blog: Hidden Waters

Driving south on Highway 100 at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, I heard WCCO-AM’s Steve Murphy reporting on a horrific accident. A car was submerged, people trapped inside. I didn’t hear the location. I remember thinking it was likely somewhere by Lake Minnetonka. Suddenly at St. Louis Park traffic slowed, and I saw an ambulance racing with lights and sirens on in the northbound lane.

St. Louis Park Intersection Had Prior Crashes

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.
