Fortunately, he was the only occupant in his vehicle.According to the Minnesota State Patrol’s accident report, the single-vehicle crash was reported around 4:09 p.m. near milepost 129 along Minnesota Highway 7. According to the crash report, Kennedy was driving a Ford F250 pickup truck westbound on Highway 7 when it left the roadway and rolled.
Fortunately, Kennedy was wearing a seat belt and the airbag in the truck deployed. Road conditions were wet at the time of the crash and alcohol is not believed to be a factor, according to the State Patrol. That sounds to us like he was driving too fast.
