On this day in 2007...


A vehicle crash outside of Austin kills two people in a weekend snowstorm.

Leonard Kasten, a 69-year-old from Stewartville, and his passenger, 35-year-old Michelle Peterson, hit the median on Interstate 90 due to icy roads, and were reported dead later that evening on this day six years ago.

The deaths were two in a string of eight on the weekend, all traffic related.

The storm was statewide, affecting places as far north as Duluth.
