A 21-year-old Woodbury man has died from injuries suffered in a two-car collision on an icy roadway in Lake Elmo.
Ryan Christopher Mathis, a junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, died Monday, three days after losing control of his vehicle on 10th Street N. near the entrance to Lake Elmo Park Reserve.
Mathis was traveling eastbound on Dec. 23 when his vehicle slid sideways across the centerline, colliding with an oncoming car driven by Jane Marie Parrish, also of Woodbury, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Both were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Parrish had "moderate injuries," the report said.
Mathis was studying landscape architecture at the university, an online obituary said. He was a graduate of East Ridge High School in Woodbury, where he played basketball for the Raptors.
The crash occurred on a stretch of 10th Street N. that was "snowy, slushy and slippery," according to the Sheriff's Office accident report.
Services will be Friday at noon at St. Ambrose of Woodbury Church, 4125 Woodbury Drive, with visitation at 11 a.m.
