Fridley has one fewer bus shelter after a vehicle spun out at 73rd and University avenues NE Saturday.
Fridley Police Sgt. Jim Mork said Sunday that all three people in the vehicle were transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
It was a one-vehicle crash, Mork said. The vehicle ended up in the ditch by the side of University Avenue, which is Minnesota Hwy. 47.
The cause of the crash, including why the driver lost control, is under investigation, Mork said.
The bus shelter at the southwest corner of the intersection was "really destroyed," Mork said. A crew from Metro Transit removed the debris and what was left of the shelter Saturday, he added.

Anoka County Distpatch said the first report came in at 6:17 p.m. Fridley Police got the call a minute later and were on the scene almost immediately, Mork said.
"The bus waiting place is smashed," a passerby told Fridley Patch Saturday night, adding that police had the street "completely blocked off" near the scene. Another passerby reported seeing the clean up crew at work later in the evening.
