Hwy 15 Fatality Names Released 18 Mar 14

Authorities have released the names of the people involved in a fatal head-on crash on Highway 15 just south of Winthrop Monday. A northbound 1999 Buick Regal driven by 43-year-old Charlan Kaml of Kimball apparently crossed over into the southbound lane on 15 at just after 6am and hit a 2013 Ford pickup truck driven by 33-year-old John Lott of Winthrop. Kaml was not wearing a seatbelt, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Lott did have a seatbelt on, and was treated for non life-threatening injuries at the New Ulm Medical Center. There was freezing rain falling across much of the state Monday morning, causing multiple crashes.
