I-35W crash causes fire, driver rescued by ‘good Samaritans’

A crash on Interstate 35W in Minneapolis on Sunday led to a vehicle involved catching fire, and bystanders helping save the driver.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, troopers responded to the scene of a two-vehicle crash around 9:23 p.m., near I-35W and 28th Street.

When troopers arrived, they found a damaged vehicle that had crashed into the guardrail and then caught on fire.
