A pickup truck veered onto the shoulder of Interstate 694 in Oakdale on Sunday morning, authorities said, striking a vehicle that had pulled over and killing its driver, who was standing outside the vehicle.
The victim, Darryl Leroy Bell, 46, of Minneapolis, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The State Patrol said he was standing outside his Lincoln MKS when a Chevy Silverado driven by Thomas Edmund Soller, 70, of Stillwater, drifted onto the shoulder.
The pickup struck the Lincoln, throwing Bell to the shoulder, the patrol said. The pickup continued on the shoulder before veering into traffic and hitting another vehicle driven by a 28-year-old California woman. The pickup then veered across all lanes of traffic before coming to rest in the east ditch.
Soller was not injured, the patrol said. The California woman and a passenger in the Lincoln, Sandra Lee Bell, 52, were also uninjured.
The wreck occurred about 10:35 a.m. on I-694 between 15th Street N. and Stillwater Boulevard.
