At least 2 killed in southern Minnesota crash

AUSTIN, Minn. — At least two men are dead after a car crash on the south end of Austin.

Mower County sheriff's Deputy Tom Mensink says the car left a street near a curve early Saturday, hit a fence, severed a telephone pole and snapped a tree.

Another male passenger was hurt but his condition was unknown Saturday.

Mensink tells the Austin Daily Herald that authorities believe speed may have been a factor.

Police are not releasing the men's names until Monday.
