A man from Caledonia, Minn., was killed Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash in Winona County in southeastern Minnesota, the State Patrol said.
Aldred Carl Fruechte, 83, was heading east on Miller Valley Road in Richmond Township and crossing Hwy. 61 about 4:15 p.m. when he was struck by a motorist heading south on Hwy. 61, the patrol said.
Fruechte, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to Mayo Clinic in La Crosse, Wis., where he died.
Amanda Neumann, the driver of the SUV that collided with Fruechte’s car, was not hurt in the crash. The 31-year-old woman from Sparta, Wis., also was wearing a seat belt.
Roads were dry at the time of the crash, and alcohol does not appear to have been a contributing factor, the patrol said.
