25 people died statewide in January traffic crashes


January was more deadly than usual on Minnesota roads, with nearly three times as many deaths in 2016 as last year, including two in the last two days of the month. February didn’t start well, either, when a crash Monday morning in Winona County killed two people and left another injured, the State Patrol said.

A woman heading north on Hwy. 61 near Winona lost control of her car on an icy curve about 6 a.m., crossed the median and crashed head-on into an SUV. The SUV caught fire; the driver was trapped and died at the scene. The woman in the car also died. A passenger in the car was hospitalized in Winona. No names were released.
