A driver who died after crashing a car through barricades and plunging onto a closed section of Interstate 35W early Saturday in south Minneapolis has been identified.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office said Sunday that the driver was Jose Joel Guerra, 33, of Minneapolis. The news release said he also was known as Jorge Sandoval.

Details were scarce about the accident, which occurred at 5:30 a.m. Saturday at the 46th Street bridge.

According to the State Patrol, the driver of a 1991 Buick Regal was heading south on the Stevens Avenue frontage road when the car went through barriers blocking the ramp to southbound 35W. Guerra died at the scene.
