The name of the man is not being released at this time, according to a news release from the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office.

The derailment, which included 31 cars, happened at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday, March 26.
As a semi was turning around onto North Dakota Highway 1804 to go west, an eastbound pickup truck hit the side of the semitrailer, the Highway Patrol said.
The move comes after a fiery crash near Mapleton on March 15 that involved hazardous materials and left one driver dead.
The man had stopped a road grader he was driving to make repairs when he was hit by a vehicle.

Upon arrival, law enforcement located the 67-year-old man laying on the ground next to a 2023 Ski-Doo snowmobile. First responders performed life-saving measures before the man was declared deceased at the scene.

New London Fire and Ambulance, Spicer First Responders, the Kandiyohi County Rescue Squad, Centra-Care Ambulance and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources assisted at the scene.
