Two killed in separate crashes on Hwy. 55 less than 20 minutes apart

Two men aged 47 and 49 died in the crashes.

Two men were killed in separate crashes on Highway 55 in Minnesota on Saturday morning.

The crashes happened just 17 minutes apart from each other, the first on eastbound Hwy. 55 at County Road 50 in Greenfield, in the west Twin Cities metro.

There a 2013 Infiniti was struck by a semi-truck that crossed over the median curb, hitting the sedan head-on at around 10:46 a.m.

The driver of the Infiniti, 49-year-old Steven Cullinan of Buffalo, was killed in the crash.

The driver and passenger in the semi-truck suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

At 11:03 a.m., a Jeep Liberty westbound on Hwy. 55 near 90th Street NW in South Haven left the road and went into a ditch.

It then vaulted off of a driveway approach and came to a rest at J&J Marine.

Driver Chad Rannow, 47, of Silver Lake, was killed in the crash. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to the State Patrol.
