MN Car Crash Leaves 1 Dead, 3 in Serious Condition

A 2004 Pontiac Aztek and a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix were involved in a head-on collision Tuesday about 3 p.m.. The highway had to be closed for several hours. The state patrol said that the car heading north on Hwy 169 crossed into the southbound lanes, causing the car accident.

Eyewitnesses said at least one person was trapped inside one of the vehicles and had to be extracted. Two females and one male were taken to HCMC with serious injuries. A fourth person was pronounced dead at the scene.

In 2005, head-on car crashes accounted for only 2% of the accidents but 10% of the fatalities. The impact of a head-on car crash between two vehicles, each traveling at 50 m.p.h., is equivalent to hitting a stationary car at 100 m.p.h.
