At 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 26, 2014, the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office received a report of a dump truck versus passenger car accident on County Road 1 about one mile south of Red Wing in Featherstone Township.
A dump truck driven by Tylor Lerum, 30, Red Wing, was northbound on County Road 1 when a passenger car driven by Jacob T. Christianson, 23, Red Wing, entered his lane.
Lerum slowed and steered to the right but was unable to avoid the collision.
Christianson was pronounced dead at that scene. Lerum was uninjured other than some pain from the seatbelt.
Christianson was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the vehicle. Alcohol is not believed to be a contributing factor; an autopsy is being conducted.
County Road 1 was closed for approximately three hours to allow for the investigation and clean-up of the accident scene.
