Man killed in northeastern Minnesota crash

MIDWAY TOWNSHIP, Minn. - One man was killed and another injured Tuesday morning in a head-on collision between a pickup truck and a semi in Midway Township.

Emergency responders were dispatched to the intersection of Midway and North Cloquet roads just before 7:30 a.m. The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office reported that witnesses said a black Toyota Tacoma pickup driven by a 25-year-old man from Wrenshall was southbound on Midway Road when it crossed into the opposite lane, striking a semi with a crane attachment head-on.

The driver of the semi, a 58-year-old man from Superior, Wis., had non-life-threatening injuries. The name of the man who died was being withheld until notification of relatives.

Midway Road was closed for several hours after the crash. The accident remains under investigation.
