Fatal Accident



Authorities say a 22-year-old La Crescent man was killed in a one-vehicle crash in Winona County Saturday evening.

Sheriff Dave Brand said a vehicle driven southbound on Winona County Road 11, four miles south of Ridgeway, by Caleb Leslie Hughes, went off the road and struck a driveway embankment.

Brand said it traveled some 238 feet before hitting the embankment and then went end-over-end a distance of 61 feet before it landed on its wheels.

Brand said Hughes was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash was reported about 11:00 p.m. Saturday by a female who called 9-1-1.

Brand said the body was taken to Rochester for an autopsy.
