Crash In Eagan Kills 1, Injures Another

EAGAN (AP) — Authorities are investigating a fatal crash that closed the westbound lanes of Highway 55 in Eagan for several hours.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the head-on collision killed one person and injured another.

Deputies were called to the crash just before 6 a.m. Friday. The patrol says a 2005 Toyota Camry was headed eastbound on Highway 55 when it veered into the westbound lanes and hit a 2006 Ford Focus head-on.

Authorities say the driver of the Focus, 52-year-old Kevin Hough of Farmington, was killed. The other driver was taken to Regions Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Roads were dry at the time. The highway reopened to traffic late Friday morning.
