One person was airlifted to Mayo Clinic Hospital St. Mary’s Campus and Highway 56 was closed briefly in LeRoy this morning after a two-car crash just east of LeRoy-Ostrander Schools.

Daniel Bartel, 60, of LeRoy, was taken to St. Mary’s with non-life threatening injures after his 1998 Lincoln Mark Coupe rear ended a 1994 Chevrolet Lumina driven by Andrew Ulland, 30, of Austin around 8:43 a.m. Saturday on northbound Highway 56, according to a Minnesota State Patrol report.

Ulland’s Lumina was reportedly stopped in the right shoulder. Ulland was not injured.
