GOODHUE, Minn. (WCCO) – Authorities are investigating a fatal crash west of Goodhue, Minn. after one vehicle broadsided another along Highway 52.

The crash happened near the intersection with County Road 9 at about 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The Minnesota State Patrol reports that a 1998 GMC Sonoma was traveling eastbound along the county road and crossing Highway 52. The Sonoma was then involved in a broadside crash with a 2002 Volkswagen Golf.

One of the two drivers was killed in the crash. The condition of the other was not reported.

The intersection of Highway 52 and County Road 9 is where crews installed new high-tech signs that use video cameras and sensors to detect traffic, and then pass the information to lighted signs.
