A vehicle went off the roadway and into open water in northwest Minnesota on Friday, and one of the car's two occupants drowned, the Associated Press reports.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the accident was at about 5:30 p.m. Friday in Clay County, on Highway 32 about two miles north of Rollag, the AP reports. There were patches of ice and packed snow on the road, patrol officials said.
There were at least 183 crashes, most weather-related, around the state Thursday into Friday as snow, wind and cold made for treacherous driving. A trooper's car was hit when he stopped to help other motorists.
