A 61-year-old Gibbon man is dead and three other people are injured after two cars collided head-on Saturday night on Highway 63 in Mower County.
David Rettmann was driving a 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo southbound on the highway near mile marker 24 when it collided at about 11 p.m. with a 2011 Kia OLX with three people inside. The driver of the Kia, an unnamed 29-year-old from Rochester, was in critical condition, while the other two passengers — Rebecca Isaacs, 28, of Rochester, and Marquetta Palmer, 17, city unknown — suffered non life-threatening injuries.
Grand Meadow police, fire and ambulance services arrived at the scene, along with Stewartville Fire, Gold Cross Ambulance and Mayo One. Conditions on the undivided roadway were dry. The state patrol is investigating.
