VIDEO: Woman Who Crashed Pickup into Bar ID'd as Fridley Resident

Christine Elise Spiritwolf drove into Gordie’s Place in Little Canada, MN, authorities say.

It was a woman from Fridley behind the wheel of a pickup truck that crashed into a Little Canada bar Wednesday, according to the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office.

Christine Elise Spiritwolf drove into Gordie's Place, injuring herself and five others, the sheriff's office said in a news release Thursday (see PDFs of that release and the first one issued Wednesday that includes still images).

A video camera inside the bar caught images of the devastation (see YouTube). 

Among the new details from the sheriff's office Thursday: 

  • Spiritwolf is diabetic—although it's not clear if that has anything to do with the crash. 
  • The sheriff's office doesn't have the original video. 
  • The sheriff's office isn't yet releasing identities of the other injured persons.
