December 19, 2018

A man from Caledonia, Minn., was killed Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash in Winona County in southeastern Minnesota, the State Patrol said.

Aldred Carl Fruechte, 83, was headed east on Miller Valley Road in Richmond Township and was crossing Hwy. 61 about 4:15 p.m. when he was struck by a motorist heading south on Hwy. 61, the patrol said.

Fruechte, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to Mayo Clinic in La Crosse, Wis., where he died.

Amanda Neumann, the driver of the vehicle that collided with Fruechtes 2008 Chevy Cobalt, was not hurt in the crash. The 31-year-old woman of Sparta, Wis., driving a 2014 Ford Escape, was wearing a seat belt.

Roads were dry at the time of the crash and alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor, the patrol said.
