Coates, Mn (KROC-AM News) - A crash Saturday afternoon on a rural highway in southeastern Minnesota claimed the life of a Farmington teenager.

The State Patrol says 17-year-old Roderigo Dooley was driving east on Highway 46 about 2 miles east of Coates in Dakota County when he slowed down to make a left and a vehicle traveling in the same direction made contact with the back of his car. The collision pushed the car into the westbound lane where it collided with a minivan.


The preliminary crash report indicated the teenager was ejected from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash was reported just before 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
