Bad weather caused two fatal accidents

Two different car accidents have claimed two lives today as thick fog, icy roads, and freezing rain plague most of northeastern Minnesota.

Early this morning around 5 am a 52 year-old man crashed in Saint Augusta after his truck skidded off the road and hit a tree. A witness tried to give the man CPR be rescuers pronounced him dead on the scene.

A second accident in Raymond killed a 46 year-old man when he rolled his car.

Eight children have suffered minor injuries after a semi-truck rammed into a school bus while it was making a right turn. The children mostly suffered cuts and bruises.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the victims.
