According to the Minnesota State Patrol, three people were killed in three separate crashes on wet and icy roads on Monday. The first report of a fatal crash was at 2:00 p.m., when a rollover occurred on northbound Highway 7 in Big Stone County in western Minnesota. A Mercury Grand Marquis went off the road and into a southbound ditch, and then rolled down a steep hill, eventually coming to a rest with the passenger side on the ground. The driver, 85-year-old Donavan Tesch of Clinton, was pronounced dead at the scene. The Big Stone County Sheriff’s office says roads were wet at the time of the accident.
The sun was not yet up on Thursday morning when the call came into St Louis Park Police Department. Officer Aaron Trant was among those first on the scene. His first reaction was to jump in and try to save the children.
Driving south on Highway 100 at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, I heard WCCO-AM’s Steve Murphy reporting on a horrific accident. A car was submerged, people trapped inside. I didn’t hear the location. I remember thinking it was likely somewhere by Lake Minnetonka. Suddenly at St. Louis Park traffic slowed, and I saw an ambulance racing with lights and sirens on in the northbound lane.
