Two Weather Related Deaths In Minnesota

Minnesota authorities say a second person has died because of icy road conditions caused by the holiday storm.

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota authorities say a second

person has died because of icy road conditions caused by the

holiday storm.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a collision Thursday afternoon

claimed the life of 34-year-old Robert Krensing of Fergus Falls.

Authorities say a minivan in Becker County crossed the center

line and collided head-on with the vehicle in which Krensing was a

passenger. An accident report notes the road was icy.

The driver of the minivan was unhurt. The driver and three other

passengers in Krensing's vehicle had minor injuries.

Krensing's death is the second reported fatality in Minnesota

associated with the winter storm.

The State Patrol says a 60-year-old Wisconsin woman died

Wednesday when her vehicle spun into oncoming traffic in Renville

County.
