Young man killed in Freeborn County crash

A young man from Glenville is dead after a semi blew a tire and lost control on I-35 in Freeborn County yesterday morning.

The Minnesota State Patrol hasn’t released the name of the 22-year-old victim.  A crash report says just after 8 a.m. the semi, driven by Scott Lewis Kirton, 45, of Hammond, Wisconsin, was southbound on the freeway when the tire blew, sending the truck careening through the median before it struck a pickup in the northbound lane.

Neither vehicle was carrying passengers.
