Storm Downs Power Line, Contributes To Fatal Crash On I-90 By Worthington

Worthington, Minnesota– One person was killed and four people were taken to a hospital after an accident near Worthington on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

The Minnesota State Patrol reports that at about 5:55 p.m., 23-year-old Tyler Gilbery of Tea, SD was driving a 2009 Pontiac eastbound on Interstate 90, two-thirds of a mile east of Highway 60 on I-90, near the MnDOT weigh station. They tell us that 26-year-old Jaskaran Singh of Ottawa Canada was also eastbound on I-90 in a 2019 Freightliner semi, and that 37-year-old Diego Alvaro Campos of Chile was also eastbound on I-90 in a 2021 Chevy.

The report says that power lines had fallen over the interstate due to a storm going through. The Campos Chevrolet stopped to avoid hitting wires. The Singh Freightliner collided with the Chevrolet. The Pontiac only collided with the wires.

A passenger in the Alvaro Campos vehicle, 30-year-old Martha Lilian Llanos Rodriguez of Mexico City, Mexico died in the crash. She was pronounced dead on the scene. The Worthington Ambulance took Alvaro Campos and two other passengers, 42-year-old Bradford Barrett of Annapolis, Maryland; and 33-year-old Aldo Viscarra-Avilez to Sanford Worthington Hospital. Barrett’s injuries were described as “life-threatening.”

The Worthington Ambulance also took Gilbery (the driver of the Pontiac) to Sanford Worthington Hospital. Singh didn’t report any injuries.

The Nobles County Sheriff’s Office, Worthington Police Department, Worthington Fire Department, and the Worthington Ambulance Squad assisted at the scene.
