Created: 01/07/2014 4:52 PM WDIO.com

A Duluth man has died after sustaining serious injuries last month in a crash involving two trucks and a car.

The Minnesota State Patrol said 50-year-old Peter Nilsson was brought to Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Clinic in Duluth on Dec. 23rd.

The Patrol said that a logging truck heading south disobeyed a stop light at the intersection of Highway 53 and 12th Avenue in Virginia.

Authorities said it broadsided a Viking Electric truck driven by Nilsson. The State Patrol says Nilsson died from his injuries Monday, Jan. 6.

The driver of the logging truck, Mark Fosso, of Cook, was not hurt.

Some of the logs fell off the trailer and struck a Pontiac Bonneville, but that driver was not hurt either.
