Monday morning, A Browerville woman died after her car was broadsided by another vehicle on Hwy. 10 east of St. Cloud. The woman was exiting the travel information center south of St. Cloud when she crossed westbound lanes of the highway and was struck. The driver of the westbound car was taken to St Cloud hospital. Investigation by the Minnesota State Patrol continues as to what happened.
This death, like any other on Minnesota roads is particularly unfortunate considering it comes near the end of a year, that the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS) has reported, as being low for highway deaths. There were 458 deaths in 2008, which was a drop from 510 in 2007.
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. In this accident sorrow for the families and friends of those involved goes out.
