Woman fatally pinned in rollover crash in Minneapolis

The crash happened early Tuesday morning.

A Minneapolis woman believed to be in her 30s was killed in a rollover crash Tuesday morning, police say. 

The crash happened around 5:33 a.m. near Glenwood Avenue and Xerxes Avenue in Minneapolis, a Minneapolis Police Department news release says. When police arrived, they found the vehicle on its roof north of the intersection. 

The woman was pinned underneath the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else is believed to have been in the vehicle at the time of the crash, police say. 

The MPD's preliminary investigation indicates the woman was driving eastbound on Glenwood Avenue when the vehicle left the roadway, east of Theodore Wirth Parkway, and rolled over, ejecting the woman. 

"There is also evidence to lead investigators to believe the vehicle may have been operated without a left front tire for a period of time before leaving the roadway, the release said. "Speed and failure to wear a seatbelt are possible contributing factors."

The victim has not been identified and no other information has been released. 

This crash was one of three rollover crashes police in the Twin Cities responded to Tuesday morning. KSTP says a second rollover crash happened on Interstate 94 near 42nd Avenue in Minneapolis. A third occurred along westbound Highway 10 near Hanson Boulevard in Coon Rapids.
