MINNETONKA, Minn. -- The State Patrol says a man has died following an accident on Interstate 394 in Minnetonka Tuesday morning.

Lt. Eric Roeske says a car traveling eastbound on I-394 went off the road near Hopkins Crossroad just before 9 a.m.

Fifty-two-year-old Michael Fernando of Eden Prairie was driving the car that went into the water. He was able to make it out of the vehicle. But according to Roeske, Fernando died of an apparent "medical situation" after that.  He says Fernando did not drown.
