A pickup truck slid off of an icy I-35E flyover ramp Tuesday morning in Little Canada, down to westbound I-694 and landed on a frozen-over holding pond.

Fortunately, Anne M. Spiess’ vehicle did not break through the ice. Spiess, 54, of Maplewood, was in fair condition Tuesday afternoon at Regions Hospital.

Police and the State Patrol responded to at least six rollovers between 5 and 9 a.m. The first happened just after 5 a.m. on Hwy. 212 at Hwy. 41 in Chaska.
