A 43-year-old Minneapolis man died Tuesday night after his car went off an embankment and crashed into some trees in Oak Grove, Minnesota. 

According to the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office, around 8:40 p.m., the driver of a Toyota Scion was driving eastbound on Viking Boulevard when he drifted onto the right shoulder and went up an embankment. The car went airborne and eventually came to a stop pinned by several trees. 

Several law enforcement agencies responded to the scene. Responders extricated the driver from the car and attempted life-saving measures. They ordered a helicopter transport, but the driver was pronounced dead before he could be transported. 

The driver was the sole occupant in the vehicle. 

The crash remains under investigation.
