2 South Dakota Men Killed In Crash On Minnesota Highway

AVOCA, Minn. (AP) — Two South Dakota men have died in a highway crash in southwestern Minnesota.

The men were driving separate vehicles when they collided in Murray County Monday night, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Officials said 26-year-old Alexander Bretsch, Frederick, was northbound on Highway 59 near Avoca when his pickup collided with a southbound car driven by 37-year-old Kyle Thompson, of Huron, near Lime Lake.

Both men were transported to Murray County Medical Center where they were pronounced dead.

The State Patrol says alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
