Two Construction Workers Killed 14 Oct 11

Two highway workers are dead after a car drove into them on Interstate 35W in Burnsville. Craig Carlson of Ramsey died at the scene Thursday night after being tossed 50 feet and Ronald Rajkowski of St. Joseph later died at a hospital. The driver, a 21-year-old man from Missouri, reportedly swerved from a construction wall and lost control before hitting the workers in a ditch. Alcohol was not a factor, though the driver had posted on his Facebook page that he was excited to drive his new car he described as exceptionally fast.
