MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - The highway was dry when a car crossed the center median and hit an oncoming truck, killing three and injuring three others between St. Peter and Mankato.
Minnesota State Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grebow says a Dodge Caliber crossed the centerline Sunday and collided with a Ford F-150 pickup on Highway 169.
Thirty-six-year-old Lindi Paul of St. Peter and her 5-year-old daughter, Emma Paul, were killed in the Caliber.
Sixty-five-year-old Michael O'Boyle of Marion, S.D., also died. He was driving the pickup.
A 4-year-old girl in O'Boyle's pickup was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. The other passengers - a woman and an 8-year-old boy - didn't have life-threatening injuries.
The State Patrol says the highway was dry and no alcohol was detected.
More information was expected Monday.
