---- — NICOLLET — A one-car accident resulted in at least one fatality Thursday night near Nicollet, according to a State Patrol report.

A 2000 Volkswagen Beetle was traveling south on Highway 111 about 4.5 miles north of Nicollet at 9:25 p.m. when 26-year-old Fredrick Gieseke of Nicollet lost control of the car, which skidded across the highway and rolled several times in the west-side ditch.

Gieseke was killed in the crash and a 17-year-old passenger in the car was injured, a Minnesota State Patrol report said. The passenger was not named in the report. The investigation isn't complete so his name can not be released due to the possibility that charges could be filed, said Sgt. Jacalyn Sticha.
