Man, 66, dies after his ATV was hit by a minivan on highway

It happened in Renville County Friday evening.

An ATV driver was killed Friday when his vehicle was struck by a minivan in Renville County.

The incident was reported to police at 10:30 p.m., with the Minnesota State Patrol saying Richard Oneil, 66, of Morton, drove his 2019 Polaris ATV out of the ditch and onto Highway 71.

He was then struck by an oncoming Dodge Caravan, driven by a 46-year-old man from Red Lake, who had an 18-year-old passenger.

Oneil was killed in the collision. The Minnesota State Patrol says he wasn't wearing a helmet, and it's not known whether alcohol was involved.

The two people in the minivan were taken to Redwood Falls Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
