At Least One Killed in SUV & Car Collision at Brainerd Lakes Area Intersection

The State Patrol responded to the second fatal crash shortly after 6:30 Tuesday evening. The fatality occurred at the intersection of Hwy. 371 and Excelsior Rd. 


Both vehicles were heading east on the west side of the intersection when an SUV began making contact with a car in front of it. The light turned green and the SUV pushed the car into the intersection, the state crash report says. 

That caused the car to spin out and the SUV to enter the ditch on the southside of the intersection, make contact with a curb and collide with a gun range.
