A 23-year-old Nisswa, Minn., man was killed in a broadside collision Friday in central Minnesota, the State Patrol said.
Lucas A. Johnson, a passenger in a car, was killed in a collision with a van.
The State Patrol said Cody D. Husemoller, 20, of Duluth, was driving south on Hwy. 10 in Royalton, which is in Morrison County, when the accident occurred on the wet, divided road just before 11 a.m.
Scott Geiger, 36, of Sartell had been heading north on Hwy. 10 in a van, and Husemoller was in the left lane when he swerved to avoid stopped traffic and slid into the oncoming traffic lane, the patrol said.
The van crashed into Husemoller’s car on the passenger side. Johnson and Geiger were wearing seat belts, but no information was available on whether Husemoller was wearing one, the Patrol said.
Husemoller suffered noncritical injuries; Geiger was not injured. Alcohol was not a factor in the collision, the patrol said.
