Alcohol suspected in fatal wrong-way crash in Winona
Authorities say alcohol is suspected in a fatal wrong-way crash that happened in Winona early Saturday morning.
According to a Minnesota State Patrol crash report, a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado was driving north in the southbound lanes of Highway 61 at 12:45 a.m. When the truck got to the intersection of Highway 61 and Highway 43, it collided with a 2010 Toyota Camry.
The three Wisconsin residents in the Toyota were injured and were taken to a hospital. One of them — identified as 20-year-old Hannah Alyce Goman, of Stevens Point, Wisconsin — died. The other two suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the crash report states.
The report states that the driver of the Chevrolet, identified as 35-year-old Adam Samuel Anderson, of Winona, is believed to have consumed alcohol.
Anderson was booked into the Winona County Jail Saturday morning on suspicion of fourth-degree DWI and criminal vehicular operation.
Winona State University confirmed Goman was a sophomore at the school and was studying social work. The school also said counseling and support services are available for the campus community.
The crash remains under investigation.
