Seriously Injured In Car Accident – MN Lawyers


The Star Tribune recently reported that a speeding car skidded on an icy south Minneapolis street, went airborne and nose-dived onto two unoccupied vehicles parked behind a home. The crash occurred about 2:30 a.m. near E. 42nd Street and S. Oakland Avenue. It sounds like something right out of a movie.

Police were notified about six hours later, went to the scene immediately and saw a nearly vertical Nissan on top of a car and a pickup truck in a garage driveway. Initially, they thought someone could have been seriously injured or killed. However, no one was found at the scene. It is hard to believe that a person could just walk away from a car accident like that. However, that seems to be what happened.

“It is believed the Nissan was traveling at a high rate of speed and hit an area of ice and lost control, sending the vehicle airborne,” a Minneapolis police statement read. The driver fled and remains at large, police said. Fortunately, there is no indication that anyone was seriously injured. 

The homeowner didn’t even know about his misfortune until well after it happened. “I wasn’t home when it happened,” he said. “I was Up North fishing. However, there are three damaged vehicles and my garage is damaged. I don’t even know if the guy [driving] has insurance.”

A neighbor who was driving by about 9:10 a.m. said he saw it out of the corner of his eye and it looked like someone just dropped it from a crane.
