Two men from New Ulm were killed early Saturday in a head-on collision in southern Minnesota.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2015 Dodge Dart driven by Aaron B. Gronau, 33, was southbound on Hwy. 15 near Linden Township just after 2:30 a.m. Saturday when it collided with a 2014 Jeep Cherokee driven by Luis H. Perez, 28, that was northbound.

In addition to the State Patrol, the Hanska Fire Department and the Brown County Sheriff's Office responded to the crash. Both men died at the scene.

Gronau was wearing a seat belt and Perez was not, the patrol said. Both vehicles' air bags deployed.

The State Patrol says investigators have not determined if alcohol was a factor.
