(Mankato, MN) – Ice and snow covered roads were a factor in two separate crashes in the same spot on Highway 60 in under two hours

The Minnesota State Patrol says that at around 9:32 a.m., a 2003 Ford Ranger driven by a 31-year-old St. James man lost control on icy roads as it was traveling eastbound on Highway 60.  The vehicle rolled into the ditch at the milepost 98 marker in Judson Township.  The man’s name has not been released, and the extent of his injuries aren’t yet known.

Less than an hour and a half later, a Toyota Celica that was eastbound on Highway 60 in the same location lost control, entered the south ditch and rolled.  The occupants of the Toyota were a 25-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman.  Their identities and the details of their injuries have not been released by the state patrol.
