Rochester man killed after his car crashes into Lewiston area creek


 LEWISTON, Minn. (KXLT) -- A Rochester man is dead after his car crashes into a creek Thursday evening near Lewiston.

It happened around 4:30 on Thursday on County Road 120 just off of Highway 14.

A 54-year-old Rochester man lost control of his vehicle and went off the road, hitting an embankment that sent him airborne over the creek, and landing upside down.

The car was flattened after landing on the roof in the creek. First responders found the man dead inside the car when they arrived on scene.

Winona County Sheriff, Dave Brand, says the man was not wearing a seat belt and speed may have been a factor.

The crash is still under investigation.

The man's identity will not be released until family is notified.
