Their vehicles collided head-on Monday afternoon on snow- and slush-covered Hwy. 14 in Winona County, killing the 17-year-old Stiehl, the State Patrol said today.
As for the Rusert, 54, of Utica, Minn., he had “no apparent injury,” the patrol report said.
Airbags deployed in both vehicles. The patrol described both cars as severely damaged.
This is a pet subject of mine. How could any intelligent person drive a car in snow and slush covered roads and not wear a seatbelt? There is no rational reason to ever not wear a seatbelt. Driving is the most dangerous activity you participate in.
