MONTICELLO --The Minnesota State Patrol has released the names of the two people involved in a crash on Interstate 94 near Monticello this (Monday) afternoon.

Sixty-four-year-old Allan Fraser, of Simcoe, Ontario, was heading westbound on I-94 at a slow speed.

Forty-four-year-old Mark McCalmant of Albany tried to pass Fraser, when the two made contact with each other at a speed of about 70 miles an hour.

McCalmant was airlifted to the hospital.

The crash caused the State Patrol and MnDOT to close one of the lanes, and the ramp near Monticello, for a short time, which caused a significant traffic backup in that area.

Fraser had no apparent injuries.
