The 64-year-old Iowa man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 64-year-old Iowa man was killed in a crash in southeast Minnesota on Sunday. 

The Minnesota State Patrol's says the crash happened at approximately 8:35 a.m. on Hwy. 43 near Fillmore County Road 106 in Rushford Village. 

The cause of the crash is being investigated, but authorities believe a 21-year-old woman driving a 2007 Ford Edge was traveling southbound on Hwy. 43 when she went onto the right shoulder, which is gravel, and then slid sideways into oncoming traffic. 

Her vehicle struck a 2003 Honda Civic in the northbound lane. The driver of the Civic, 64-year-old Richard Lee Engelhart of Cresco, Iowa, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The Ford Edge overturned and went down an embankment. 

The 21-year-old Spring Grove woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Winona Hospital for treatment. 

Road conditions were wet at the time of the crash.
