Driver who got out of his vehicle following a crash is killed by another car

The Minnesota State Patrol advises people stay in their cars if safe after a crash.

A Bloomington man was killed by another driver when he got of out his car after a crash.

Stephen Rabuse was driving a Mercury Sable south on southbound Interstate 35W just north of County Road E2 in Arden Hills shortly after midnight Sunday, when his vehicle went off the road into a ditch and crashed into a light pole, the Minnesota State Patrol says.

Rabuse then got out of his car and walked onto the southbound lanes of I-35W. That's when he was hit and killed by a Pontiac G6.

There were three people in the Pontiac when the crash happened. The 21-year-old driver wasn't injured, while the two passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Lt. Tiffani Nielson, of the state patrol, told GoMN they recommend people staying in their cars following a crash, and if they can't, to move away from the road. She said drivers on a freeway have a hard time seeing pedestrians, and that gets even worse at night.

So far this year, 166 people have died in traffic-related incidents, the Office of Traffic Safety's website says. Last year at this time there were 183 fatalities on Minnesota roads.
