Killed in Truck Accident MN Lawyers


The Minnesota State Patrol reported today that a dump truck slammed into a group of cars on Highway 55 in Rosemount, killing two people in one of the vehicles. The crash undoubtedly closed the highway for several hours.

The report says the crash happened around 12:20 p.m. at the intersection with Doyle Path, where a southbound semi had stopped to turn left, causing cars to line up behind it. The first car that stopped was a Subaru Legacy, the next was pickup truck. The cars were motionless when a dump truck slammed into the back of the pickup, pushing it into the ditch. The truck then hit the Subaru, causing it to smash into the back of the semi. Unfortunately, the high speed crash resulted in tragic consequences.

The two people in the Subaru were killed, both from South St. Paul.  However, the drivers of the other vehicles suffered non-life-threatening injuries. They were brought to Regions Hospital for treatment. Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the crash. It is most likely that the truck driver was distracted of fell asleep at the wheel.
