Morton, MN (KROC-AM News) - The State Patrol has identified the victim of a deadly ATV crash in western Minnesota.

66-year-old Richard Oneil of Morton was driving a four-wheeler in the ditch along Highway 71 in Renville County late last night just before he was killed. The State Patrol says the man suffered fatal injuries when the ATV left the ditch and entered the southbound lane of the highway where it collided with a minivan.

The driver of the minivan, 46-year-old Conrad Rainey of Red Lake, and his 18-year-old passenger, Tyrese Desjarlait, were transported by ambulance to a hospital in Redwood Falls with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. Oneil, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.


The State Patrol says the deadly crash occurred around 10:30 p.m. about one mile north of Morton, which is located about five miles east of Redwood Falls.
