Fatal Motor Vehicle Crash - New Market Township

On July 26, 2018, at approximately 2:30 pm, Scott County Sheriff’s Deputies were responding to a driving complaint when the vehicle in question crashed near the intersection of Pillsbury Avenue (County Road 46) and Deuce Road (County Road 2) in New Market Township.  The driver, a 61 year old man from Richfield, was pronounced dead at the scene.  There were no other occupants in the vehicle, no other vehicles involved, and no one else was injured.

The reporting party advised that the vehicle was driving erratically prior to entering the round-a-bout at Pillsbury Avenue and Deuce Road and then drove over the center median, entered the northbound lane of traffic on Pillsbury Avenue, rolled and came to rest on its roof in the northbound lane, south of Deuce Road.

The vehicle involved was a 2011 Toyota Rav4.  It is unknown if alcohol was a factor at this time.  The identity of the deceased will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.

“This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the New Market Fire Department, Northfield Ambulance, and the Minnesota State Patrol. This incident is being investigated by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, the Minnesota State Patrol, and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.
