Fargo woman dies in crash near Downer

DOWNER, Minn. – A Fargo woman died in a single-vehicle rollover crash about three miles west of Downer on Saturday, the Clay County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Kari McLean, 52, was found dead at the scene of the crash on County Road 10 near 130th St. S., Sgt. Darin Bredman said.

The crash was reported about 10:50 a.m., and the first deputy arrived on the scene quickly, perhaps five minutes later, Bredman said.

No other people were re-ported in the vehicle, he said.

McLean’s vehicle appeared to have been going northbound on County Road 10 when it left the road and rolled several times, deputies investigating the crash said in their initial report.

Rain and speed may have been factors in the crash, Bredman said. The incident is still under investigation.

Barnesville Ambulance personnel also responded to the scene, Bredman said.
