Icy conditions lead to fatal crash on Minn. bridge

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say icy conditions led to a fatal crash in which a Shakopee man lost control of his vehicle on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 48-year-old Steven Whiting died Friday morning. He was driving south on Highway 169 when he lost control on an icy patch.

A KARE-TV report (http://kare11.tv/1d2pSQs ) says his car went over the guardrail and landed on its roof. Whiting was the only occupant.

The crash was reported about 8:30 a.m. but police believe it happened a few hours earlier.

The Bloomington Ferry Briday spans the Minnesota River between Bloomington and Shakopee.
