A 16-year-old Hastings High School student, Madeline Rose Sake, was killed Thursday evening in a two-vehicle crash just south of Hastings. The three people in the second vehicle were transported to Regina Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The two young drivers were drag-racing, their vehicles whipping down a Cottage Grove road at high speeds. Then one suddenly left the road and flipped, smacking a pole and tossing the driver from his car.
A 51-year-old Cottage Grove man was behind the wheel of an empty school bus that was involved in a fatal four-vehicle accident Wednesday morning on Interstate 94 in St. Paul, the Minnesota State Patrol has said.
A stranded motorist was struck and injured by a Cottage Grove man's vehicle Thursday as he tried to cross Highway 61 in St. Paul to get help. The pedestrian was crossing "against the traffic signal," the State Patrol said.
Maurice “Frenchy” Fugere loved riding his Harley Davidson so much that the Cottage Grove man brought the bike with him when he spent winters in Florida.
“The bike came before anything in his life,” said his wife, Nancy, herself a motorcycle enthusiast. Fugere, 69, died Friday in a motorcycle crash.
