stevebatt Driver in Falling Block Death Was Cited Before

The truck driver whose landscape block fell off his truck and struck a car near Owatonna on Tuesday — killing a teenager — had paid a fine for a similar incident last December. Court records show that 41 year-old Darrell Jensen of Medford pleaded guilty to not having a secure load and paid a 300 dollar fine. A patrol spokesman says charges “are likely” in Tuesday’s incident, in which 17 year-old Steven Batt of Waseca was killed. A block smashed through the windshield of a car in which Batt was a passenger.
