One reported dead when truck hits span in Mall of America parking ramp

At least one person was killed Friday night when a small truck struck a concrete span in the parking lot at the Mall of America parking lot, causing the span to collapse, Bloomington police said.

The narrow rectangular span collapsed when it was struck by a U-Haul truck, police said. The span fell on the front of the truck. One person was being extracted from the vehicle at about 9 p.m.

Bloomington police and fire personnel responded to the report from the fourth floor of the parking lot near Nordstrom’s at about 8:30 p.m.

The incident appeared to be an accident and not intentional, police said.
