A west metro man was on Interstate 35W, on the way to soccer in Blaine, when the bridge collapsed in 2007.
KSTP's Chris Egert sat down with that man, his friend Doug Panner, who opened up recently about his story during a backyard bonfire.
Panner had never publicly shared his survival story until he and Egert sat down for a beer.
Listen to his story via the video player above.
