The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department says the crash happened north of Duluth where a road is under construction. The SUV left the road Saturday night, struck several large concrete drain pipes and overturned.

Several people passing by stopped to help and watched as the driver ran into some nearby woods. Sheriff's officials say the driver returned a short time later and stole one of vehicles belonging to the passers-by.

A deputy responding to the SUV crash stopped the stolen vehicle about a mile away and arrested the driver.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/16CdWps) says the man was treated for minor injuries at St. Luke's Hospital and taken to jail.
