22 March 2022

A driver crossed into oncoming traffic on a main south Minneapolis thoroughfare and died in a head-on collision, authorities said.

The crash occurred about 9:50 a.m. Monday on Hiawatha Avenue near E. 26th Street, police said.

Andrew Williams, who shot video of the crash scene for his Facebook emergency scanner-monitoring page, said Tuesday that the collision “happened right next to me while I was going southbound on Hiawatha.”

Williams said, “I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the red sedan coming up fast. He jumped the median into oncoming northbound traffic and hit the blue vehicle head-on.”

According to police:

A motorist in his late 40s was heading south on Hiawatha Avenue, “crossed over the median into northbound traffic” and collided with a vehicle driven by a man in his mid-70s.

Emergency responders took the younger driver to a hospital, where he died. The other motorist survived his injuries and was hospitalized.

The identities of the drivers have yet to be released.
