Driving home to see my parents, I came across the scene of a horrible accident at Highway 55 and County Road 6 near Annandale.
Coming west on 55, I pulled over for an ambulance moving through Maple Lake at a high rate of speed.
5 minutes later I was near 55 and County Road 6. Sheriff's Deputies had cars driving down the paved trail south of Lampi Auctioneer's and onto CR 6 North towards my parents house on Cedar Lake.
As I passed the scene, I could not see anything other than a couple of rather large wreckers and at least 6 Minnesota State Troopers, doing what appeared to be accident reconstruction.
I've driven this intersection for decades. When the sun is rising or setting, it can be a pretty tough corner to see oncoming cars.
