Mall of America Ramp Fully Reopened After Deadly Accident
A portion of a Mall of America ramp has reopened more than a week after a deadly accident closed it down. Crews have been repairing the ramp entrance and making sure it is structurally sound.
Police say 52 year-old Raheem Waheed was driving a U-Haul truck into the west ramp Aug. 3 and may have misjudged the height of the truck. The truck crashed into an overhead beam it, causing the beam to crash down on the truck's cab.
Waheed died on the scene. A 45-year-old woman and her 12-year-old daughter were also in the truck at the time of the crash. They were able to get out and were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
