EAGAN, Minn. - Rescue crews pulled a 58-year-old St. Paul man from a submerged vehicle after it plunged off a road and into a pond in Eagan Friday morning.
The Dakota County Sheriff's Office said that Thomas Iwen was driving a van that left the road at Club View Drive and Lexington around 7:30 a.m. The van flew off a 10-foot retaining wall and landed upside down in the holding pond.
Iwen was the lone occupant of the vehicle. Rescuers had to extricate him before an ambulance rushed him to the hospital, where he later died.
The investigation into what caused the crash remains open.
