Stewartville, MN (KROC-AM NEWS) - A single-vehicle crash last night in Mower County sent an Albert Lea man to St. Marys Hospital.

The State Patrol says 58-year-old Jesse Chandler was driving west on I-90 when his pickup went into the median before crossing back to the north ditch where the vehicle rolled. The crash was reported around 10:40 PM in northeastern Mower County about 10 miles southwest of the Highway 63 interchange at Stewartville.

Chandler, who was not seat-belted, suffered what the State Patrol described as non-life-threatening injuries.

The State Patrol is also reporting a fatal crash that occurred around the same time last night in McLeod County. Officials say 35-year-old Somelith Silavong of Brooklyn Park was killed when his car collided, head-on, with a pickup truck on Highway 212 just east of Brownton, which is about 10 miles south of Hutchinson.
