Sunday night, a Highway 28 collision in Stearns County killed a driver and injured his passenger . Police are still investigating the cause.

The Subaru Legacy Outback was traveling east at about 6:30 p.m. on Minnesota Highway 28, when it left the road and hit trees. Following the accident, the passenger was taken to St Cloud Hospital.

The death comes a month after the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS) report that more than 300 people have died so far this year in Minnesota traffic collisions. According to the MDPS calculations, 450 deaths are projected for 2008. This would be a drop from 510 in 2007.

As with any death in a Minnesota motor vehicle collision, there are a number of 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 case, sorrow for the families of those involved goes out.
