State Patrol: Driver dies after missing stop sign, crashing into semi tractor

The crash happened around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4.

A missed stop sign resulted in a fatal two-vehicle crash in southwest Minnesota Wednesday. 

The collision happened around 7:45 p.m. in Lyon County, at the intersection of Hwy. 59 and County Road 10. The crash location is in Vallers Township, north of Marshall. 

Per the Minnesota State Patrol, a South Dakota man driving a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer was going west on County Road 10 when he failed to stop for a stop sign at the intersection of Hwy. 59 and crashed into the side of a semi with a flatbed and water tank that was pulling a car trailer. 

The name of the man killed in the crash hasn't been released, but the State Patrol says he's a 44-year-old from Watertown, South Dakota. 

A 60-year-old Marshall man driving the semi tractor was transported to Avera Marshal Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Sheriff's offices from Lyon and Yellow Medicine counties, along with Cottonwood Ambulance, assisted at the scene. 

As of the morning of Sept. 5, there have been 235 deaths on Minnesota roads in 2019. That number, according to the Minnesota Department of Traffic Safety, is up from 223 at the same time in 2018.
