Good Thunder Man Killed in Crash 03 Feb 12

An 88-year-old rural Good Thunder man is dead following a three-vehicle crash Wednesday evening in Blue Earth County. Marvin Carl Bindig was traveling westbound on County Road 69 in LeHillier when his vehicle apparently crossed over into the eastbound lane at shortly after 8pm and struck a 1996 Oldsmobile driven-by 20-year-old Courtney Boeck of St. Peter. An eastbound car driven-by 44-year-old Dennis Kleinow of rural Mankato then struck Boeck’s vehicle. Bindig was trapped in the vehicle and had to be cut out of his car. He was the only person involved in the crash that was hospitalized, and he died from his injuries at the Mankato Mayo Hospital. Authorities say that age and other health issues may have contributed to his death.
