Crash in McLeod County kills 92-year-old, 85-year-old in critical condition

The crash happened south of Hutchinson on Wednesday.

An elderly man who was riding in a vehicle as a passenger died when the car collided with a semi tractor in McLeod County. 

The crash happened around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday on Hwy. 15 at 150th St. in Lynn Township – just south of Hutchinson, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. 

The crash report says an 85-year-old woman driving a 2020 Buick Encore was eastbound on 150th St. and the semi tractor was southbound on Hwy. 15 when they collided at the intersection. 

Marcel J. Mathison, 92, of Hector, died in the crash. The driver, an 85-year-old Hector woman, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to Hutchinson Health Hospital. 

The driver of the semi, a 39-year-old Alexandria man, was not injured.

The state's traffic safety department has so far tracked 83 deaths on Minnesota roads this year. At the same point last year there had been 76 road fatalities. 

At least 33 of the deaths on Minnesota roads in 2021 were speed-related, according to the department.
