According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the first crash happened around 11:02 p.m. on Hwy. 56 in Warsaw Township, Goodhue County. 

A 58-year-old Cannon Falls man, identified as Scott Theodore Friedrich, was driving a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country northbound on Hwy. 56 when he lost control, went into the ditch and rolled.
