A 22-year-old woman from Rogers died Tuesday night after her car rolled over and plunged into an icy creek in Maple Grove, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

According to the patrol, Carrie A. Lorman was driving west on Interstate 94 near Dunkirk Lane about 9:40 p.m. when she hit her brakes to avoid a stalled vehicle.

She swerved on the icy road and her car slid down an embankment, through a chain link fence and into a creek.

The overturned car was in the water for about 25 minutes, initially leaving Lorman in critical condition, the patrol reported.
