Car Accident Lawyers MN – Fatal Crash



The Minnesota State Patrol reported today that a 66-year-old Dodge Center man was killed in a head-on crash. The crash was on Minnesota Highway 56 north of Hayfield. Of course, both drivers could have been killed. The teenage driver of the car who caused the head on crash suffered serious injuries. He was taken to the Mayo Clinic. This is the type of tragic case that our top car accident lawyers handle frequently.

The report said the teenager was driving northbound on Highway 56 when he tried to pass another vehicle. He then hit the southbound car. Law enforcement had the highway closed for four hours this morning as they re-constructed the crash, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.


Our car accident attorneys have represented many people injured or killed is this type of situation. The State Patrol generally does a good job with their investigation of a fatal car crash. However sometimes when they are having a busy night or the weather is bad, the quality of the accident reconstruction can be rushed. Therefore, our auto accident lawyers like to get involved in MN car accident cases as soon as possible. Sometimes, we can have our own reconstructionist look at the crash scene as well.

In addition to the State Patrol, emergency personnel from Hayfield Fire and Rescue, Dodge Center Ambulance, and Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, helped with the accident. Again, our auto accident attorneys have found that while additional departments serve an important purpose, having so many people at the accident scene may add to the confusion. This can reduce investigation accuracy after someone is killed in a fatal auto accident.
