Dakota, MN (KROC-AM News) - Two people from Indiana and Illinois were injured in a traffic crash involving the Minnesota Department of Transportation truck in Winona County this morning.

The State Patrol says a man and woman, both 20 years old, were in a Jeep that was eastbound on I-90 when it collided with a MnDOT truck equipped with a crash trailer around 10:50 AM.

The incident occurred about 3 miles west of the interchange where I-90 splits from Highway 61 near the town of Dakota.


The State Patrol says the 23-year-old Eitzen man driving the MnDOT truck and his 51-year-old passenger from La Crescent were not injured.

Randall Kevin of Tinley Park Illinois and Arianna Soco of Hammond Indiana were both transported to a hospital in La Crosse with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Top 10 Items People in Minnesota Stock Up On When They Hear "Storm"

I am pretty sure that as soon as the word "storm" shows up in the forecast, people in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin are just trained to hop in their cars and go to the store. Stocking up on supplies becomes our #1 priority and we shop like we have absolutely nothing in our house to eat. So, we will up our carts with all "the things" and hope we grabbed enough to make it through the storm.

FYI - we will make it through the storm, and some of us will do that with Double Stuffed Oreos. Some of us will not...because the store shelf was empty by the time we got there.

Below are a few of the top items that we grab at the last minute before the storm hits.
