A broadside crash on a central Minnesota highway Wednesday has left a man from St. Cloud dead, the State Patrol said.
Leodis Gary, 59, was driving east on 190th Street in Milaca Township. As he tried to cross Hwy. 169, a southbound semitrailer truck struck his 2001 Oldsmobile Alero broadside on the driver’s side at 4:46 p.m., the patrol said.
Gary, who was wearing a seat belt, was dead at the scene. A passenger in his vehicle, identified as Linda Faye Otteson, 52, of St. Cloud, was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with life-threatening injuries, the patrol said.
The truck driver, Robert Zerwas, 30, of Zimmerman, was not hurt.
The road was dry at the time of the crash, which remains under investigation.
