Two Wisconsin residents died early Monday on an icy highway in southeast Minnesota. A car driven by 42-year-old Fay Bailey of La Crosse lost control on a curve, and crossed a median before colliding with an oncoming SUV driven by 42-year-old Jeffrey Meixner of Eau Claire.

Both drivers died at the scene, and a passenger in the Bailey auto was taken to a hospital in Winona with undisclosed injuries. It happened about ten miles south of Winona on Highway 61.
