    Where was this crash?? There is no Lookout Drive, near Marie Lane in Minneapolis. Was it in North Mankato? There is a Lookout Drive, near Marie Lane in that city…

    What happened to actually fact checking and providing a CLEAR STORY???? Nearly every news story has major fails like this??? Why can we provide clear, factual news any longer?

      Eric, WCCO is in Minneapolis, the story clearly states that it was in North Mankato. Maybe you need to learn how to read more clearly

    Lots of people didnot know that he’s DEAF. I know him because we went same school together at Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf in Faribault, MN. He was the most sweetest guy on this earth, smart, polite, and I can’t believe he’s gone 😦 ❤

    This is such a sad sad loss. The news report is still lacking detail. What was the CAUSE of the crash that lead to the vehicle leaving the roadway? Was the driver tired? Was the driver impared by alcohol or another substance? Was the driver distracted? Was the driver taking evasive measures to avoid a head on collison with another vehicle or a deer or other animal? Was the roadway slick from water, ice etc so the driver lost control due to weather conditions? Have there been numerous accidents at the same location and the roadway design is unsafe for drivers? Still so many questions. My heart goes out to the family.
