ST. PETER, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrol says three people are dead and three others injured after a head-on crash on a highway between St. Peter and Mankato.
Reports say that Sgt. Jesse Grebow says a Dodge Caliber crossed the centerline Sunday and collided with a Ford F-150 pickup. It happened on Highway 169.
Thirty-six-year-old Lindi Paul of St. Peter and her 5-year-old daughter, Emma Paul, were killed. They were in the Caliber, which Lindi Paul was driving.
Sixty-five-year-old Michael O'Boyle of Marion, S.D., also died. He was driving the pickup.
The newspaper reports that a 4-year-old Minnesota girl in O'Boyle's pickup sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital. The other passengers — a woman and an 8-year-old boy — sustained injuries that were not life-threatening.
