The State Patrol has released the names of the two people who were killed in a crash yesterday in the Hutchinson area.
The deadly head-on collision occurred on a rural highway near the town of Silver Lake, about 5 miles east of Hutchinson. The State Patrol says a car traveling west on the roadway crossed the centerline and collided with an eastbound SUV.
The driver of the car, 25-year-old Wilmer Herrera, and one of his two passengers suffered fatal injuries. The deceased passenger was identified as 21-year-old Fanny Perez. The State Patrol says both victims were from Montevideo. A third passenger, a two-year-old boy, was transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.
The two occupants of the SUV also suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a hospital in Hutchinson for treatment. The road conditions were described as wet at the time of the crash.
