MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities are investigating a crash during a snowy rush hour that left one person dead.
The Minnesota State Patrol says a northbound vehicle lost control and slid into the southbound lanes where it was broadsided by an oncoming minivan on Highway 13 in Eagan, just south of Interstate 494, around 8 a.m.
The Patrol identifies the victim as 24-year-old Taya N. Clifford, of Eagan. The other driver suffered minor injuries.
The Patrol reported 124 crashes statewide as of 9 a.m., including 23 with injuries, and 119 spinouts or vehicles off the road.
Driving conditions are still rates difficult in some parts of southeastern and northeastern Minnesota.
The storm left five to eight inches of snow in southern Minnesota, and four inches at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
