Three-Vehicle Accident Leaves One Man Dead

One person was killed and two others were injured Friday in a three-vehicle crash in rural Mt. Iron on Highway 7 and Chesapeake Ct.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office says the victim is a 79-year-old man from Mt. Iron.

The other two victims are 15 and 49 – both from Mt. Iron.

Authorities say the man who died was driving his truck when it crossed the center line and slammed into a car going the other way.

A third vehicle then struck the rear of the first truck and came to rest in ditch.

The cause remained under investigation Friday.

The names of the people involved will be released after family is notified.
