The State Patrol’s accident report indicates a two-door car, driven by 28-year-old Mickel Frisch of Goodview, MN, was traveling south on Hwy. 43 when it collided with a northbound pick-up truck between the Winona city limits and the Hwy. 43/I-90 interchange around 10:50 a.m. Frisch and his passenger, 19-year-old Angel Wallace of Winona, were transported to a La Crosse Hospital with what were described as life-threatening injuries. 


The pick-up driver, 47-year-old Matthew Bensen from Preston, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was brought to Winona Health for further treatment. The report indicates all three people were wearing their seatbelts and that alcohol was not a factor in causing the crash.

The Winona County Sheriff's Office, Wilson Fire Department and Winona Area Ambulance also responded to the crash. The head-on collision closed Hwy. 43 for several hours.
