A driver who failed to yield while crossing a highway in north-central Minnesota on Tuesday was killed in a two-vehicle crash.
Joseph Henry Stoderl, 88, of Bertha, Minn., was headed north on Todd County Road 23 in Stowe Prairie Township about 10 a.m. when he failed to yield to a Ford Expedition that was traveling east on Hwy. 210, the State Patrol said. Stoderl’s vehicle and the Expedition made contact, “resulting in a fatal crash,” the patrol said.
Stoderl, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene.
The driver of the Expedition, Kristine Mae Brown, 44, of Eagle Bend, Minn., was taken to St. Cloud Hospital with noncritical injuries, the patrol said.
