A witness said it took a few minutes for everyone to figure out what had happened.

"It took them about 10 to 15 minutes, maybe 15 minutes to figure out there was one gentlemen inside the vehicle and they were able to pull him out. He came out walking."

The man was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center.

KSTP is working to learn more about the victim's condition and what may have caused the crash.
