The 58-year-old driver of a van that crashed into a pond Friday morning died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.
The man’s vehicle went off the road near the junction of Clubview Drive and Lexington Avenue in Eagan, descended down a 10-foot-high retaining wall and came to rest upside down in a pond at about 7:30 a.m.
Eagan police and firefighters found the vehicle’s lone occupant inside and extricated him.
The man’s name has not been released.
Eagan police and firefighters were assisted by the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office at the crash scene, which is a block south of Lone Oak Road and near the U.S. Post Office.
The Ramsey County medical examiner will investigate the death.
