Slippery roads blamed for crash that claims the life of one

ROCK DELL, MN (FOX 47) -- Slippery frost on roads apparently contributed to a one-vehicle accident that killed an 18-year-old Hayfield man.

According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, the victim, 18-year-old Anthony Gene Johnson, was ejected from his vehicle early Saturday when it left County Road 26 near Rock Dell, went in the ditch and rolled several times.

Officials say a nearby resident heard a crash about 3:00 a.m., not realizing it was a car wreck, and the accident wasn't reported until about 6:30 in the morning.
