1 dead after Jeep goes airborne, lands in holding pond off of Highway 169 in Bloomington

The crash happened just before 1 a.m. Friday.

One person was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Hwy. 169 in Bloomington. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash happened around 12:50 a.m. on southbound Hwy. 169 at Anderson Lakes Parkway. 

The crash report indicates that a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling at a high rate of speed when it went off the road, went airborne and struck a tree before coming to a rest in a holding pond. 

The driver of the vehicle, a 22-year-old St. Paul man, was not wearing a seat belt and did not survive the crash. He's been identified as Devin Eric Gaines.

Seventy-four people have died on Minnesota roads in 2019, according to the Minnesota Department of Traffic Safety. That number is slightly up from 70 at the same time a year ago.
