The Minnesota State Patrol says 71-year-old Bruce Mikkelson was heading north on Highway 169 when he went to pass two other vehicles at a high rate of speed, lost control on a curve, and left the road.

The crash happened just north of the Rum River Drive south junction.

Troopers say it appears alcohol may have played a role in the crash.
