76-year-old killed in crash caused by apparent medical condition

(Rochester, MN) – An Albert Lea man was killed after he suffered an apparent medical condition behind the wheel on I-90 yesterday afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says William Arthur Studer was killed when the Honda CR-V he was driving west on I-90 east of Hayward drove off the roadway after he suffered an apparent medical condition.  The Honda traveled through a farm field and made a loop before vaulting over Freeborn County Road 30, then County Road 47.  The vehicle then rolled multiple times and ejected Studer’s passenger, according to the state patrol.

Studer was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.  His passenger, 80-year-old Elaine Penny Lieb of Alber Lea, was transported to St. Mary’s Rochester with life-threatening injuries.

The crash happened around 3:30 p.m.
