The Minnesota State Patrol says alcohol was a factor in a crash that killed a 26-year-old Fairmont woman early Sunday near the Iowa border. 

A State Patrol incident report says a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 27-year-old Tyler Richard Byers was northbound on Highway 263 in Martin County about 12:15 a.m. when it left the road and rolled multiple times, ejecting Byers and his passenger.

That passenger, 26-yer-old Myra Ivehe Guzman, was killed. Neither Byers, also of Fairmont, nor Guzman was wearing a seat belt. The road condition included snow and ice, according to the report. 

Byers was taken to Mayo’s St. Mary’s campus in Rochester with what the report said were non life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol was listed as a factor on the part of both the driver and the passenger, according to the report, though no  further information was available.
