St. Paul man, 60, killed in rollover crash in Cass County

It happened near the city of Bena early Saturday morning.

Authorities in Cass County, north-central Minnesota, are investigating a crash that killed a man early Saturday morning. 

It happened a mile south of the city of Bena on County Road 8, a news release from the local sheriff says.

The sheriff's office received a report about the crash at 1:43 a.m. and arrived at the scene to find a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado in a ditch. It had apparently left the roadway before rolling "and landing in a swampy area."

The truck's lone occupant was found deceased inside. 

He's been identified as a 60-year-old from St. Paul, but his name is being withheld until his family is notified.

An autopsy by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner will determine his exact cause of death; the crash is now under investigation. 

The number of people killed on Minnesota roads is now at least 340, according to the latest data from MnDOT.

Last year, a total of 381 people died on the state's roads.
