WATERVILLE — The first snowstorm of the season played a role in the crash on Highway 60 west of Waterville that two drivers Wednesday morning.
Adrien Almanza, 21, of St. James, was driving an eastbound 2005 Pontiac G6 sedan at 6:33 a.m. when he lost control on the icy road. The car crossed into the westbound lane of Highway 60 and collided with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma driven by Christopher William Schlueter, 51, of Waterville, according to the State Patrol.
Both drivers, who were transported to the Mankato hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, were wearing seat belts, and airbags in both vehicles deployed, the patrol said.
