MINNEAPOLIS - Interstate 94 re-opened in Minneapolis early Thursday morning, after a crash late Wednesday involving a car that drove off an overpass and crashed onto the freeway below.

The Minnesota State Patrol said a Cadillac ATS driving on Washington Avenue lost control and went over the guard rail on the 41st Avenue bridge. The car then fell onto the northbound lanes of I-94, where the car caught fire.

Authorities say the driver, 31-year-old Floyd Douglas Cunningham, was killed in the crash which happened about 10 p.m. Wednesday. A passenger, 37-year-old Lancha Robinson, has been upgraded and is currently hospitalized in serious condition.

Troopers said road conditions were dry at the time, and the State Patrol's initial report said alcohol was not involved.
