MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - One person is dead and another is critically injured in a fiery crash off an interstate overpass in Minneapolis.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Fifty students began the first steps of a four-year journey in Arizona to become medical doctors. The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, also called Mayo Med School, began instruction last week at its metro Phoenix campus in Scottsdale. Its inaugural class includes 10 students who are either from Arizona or have Arizona ties.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minneapolis officials say they'll require police officers to turn on their body cameras when responding to all calls and whenever they initiate traffic stops or take other actions. Acting Police Chief Medaria Arradondo (meh-DAIR'-ee-uh air-ah-DON'-do) told reporters Wednesday that the change will take effect Saturday. It follows the police shooting this month of an Australian woman, Justine Damond, who had called 911 to report hearing a possible sexual assault. Neither officer's camera was on.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A group of Minneapolis restaurants are planning to charge customers more in an effort to offset the rising cost of health insurance for employees. The Star Tribune reports that restaurant owner Kim Bartmann has decided to add a 3 percent surcharge to customers' tabs starting Friday. Restaurants affected include Barbette, Red Stag, Bryant Lake Bowl, Pat's Tap, Tiny Diner and The Bird. Bartmann says she's being clear about the surcharge and its purpose.
