MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Several people are recovering following a fiery crash early Wednesday morning in Minneapolis’ trendy North Loop neighborhood.
Witnesses told WCCO-TV that a car was speeding down Washington Avenue around midnight when it ran a red light and crashed into another car. That second car then spun out, crashed into a lamppost and went up in flames.
Video from the scene shows bystanders rushing to pull unconscious people from the burning car.
“They were cutting the seat belts off people who were knocked unconscious, trying to drag them out,” said Paul Peterson, a witness.
The Minneapolis Police Department says everyone inside the burning car was taken out. At least one person was hospitalized.
Police are still investigating the incident.
