The driver killed in a fiery crash in Golden Valley Friday has been identified as 64-year-old Joseph W. Johnson, according to Kare 11
The Le Seuer man was headed west on Highway 55 when a woman driving a minivan made an illegal left turn in front of him.
KSTP says debris from the crash also hit a Metro Mobility vehicle, which was following behind the semi.
Roeske said responding Golden Valley police officers and bystanders attempted to rescue the semi driver, who was trapped inside, but the door was jammed. The 64-year-old man did not survive the crash.
Roeske said the driver of the minivan was taken to North Memorial Medical Center with unknown injuries.
A temporary four-way stop will be implemented at the intersection until signals are repaired.
The crash happened right across the street from KARE 11 studios. A photographer shot this video:
