The crash happened around 4 a.m. Saturday. MSP says a trooper stopped a suspected stolen vehicle on Eastbound I-96 near Fruitridge, which then drove off. The vehicle then hit a curb on the exit ramp onto Southbound US-131, resulting in a crash.

One of the occupants was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. The other two people in the vehicle have been arrested by police.

MSP's Fifth District Investigative Response Team is continuing to investigate the incident.
