Saturday afternoon, a car rolled over as it traveled along Ohland Avenue Northeast near 92nd Circle in Otsego killing the passenger. The car hit the right shoulder, lost control and slid into the ditch. The Wright County Sheriff is investigating the cause for the vehicles leaving the road.
This death, like any other on Minnesota roads is particularly unfortunate considering it comes a month after the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS) reported that overall the number of highway deaths has been down for 2009 with more than 300 people having died this year in Minnesota traffic collisions. There were 458 deaths in 2008, which was a drop from 510 in 2007. In this tragic case, sorrow for the family of the man goes out.
As with any death in a Minnesota motor vehicle collision, there are many issues that will need to be reviewed. My partner, Joe Crumley, addressed this topic in a recent article for the Minnesota Lawyers Trial magazine. I was interviewed last year on the same topic.
