MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A teenage boy is dead after a rollover crash Friday morning in southwest Minnesota.

The fatal crash happened in Cottonwood County on Highway 30 in Storden just after 7:30 a.m., says the Minnesota State Patrol.

Seventeen-year-old Jonathan Escobar Lopez, from Storden, was driving a Chrysler Sebring when he apparently went off the highway, over-corrected, then went left the highway again.

The vehicle hit a sign post before vaulting across a drainage ditch and rolling several times.

The state patrol is investigating, and say Lopez was wearing a seat belt. He was the vehicle’s sole passenger.
