Slick Conditions Contributed to Injury Crash Near Lake City
Lake City, MN (KROC-AM News) - The ice fog that developed in parts of southeastern Minnesota this morning may have contributed to a crash that sent a Lake City man to the hospital.
The State Patrol says a pickup driven by 26-year-old Brandon Bennett of Plainview was traveling south on Highway 63 about six miles southwest of Lake City when he lost control on the icy roadway. A small SUV was also headed south on the highway and collided with the pickup shortly after 8 AM.
Bennett was not hurt but the driver of the SUV was transported to the late City Hospital. The State Patrol described 37-year-old Tony Schultz's injuries as non-life-threatening.
