Minn. man dies in crash trying to evade police

WINDOM, Minn. (AP) -- Police say a St. Cloud man is dead after slamming head-on into a semi during a chase in southwestern Minnesota.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 41-year-old Jason Clemenson was dead at the scene of Monday night's crash on Highway 62 about three miles west of Windom.

St. Cloud police Sgt. Martin Sayre tells KNSI-AM that Clemenson was the subject of an alert issued by St. Cloud police Monday afternoon. Sayre says police were told that he may have been suicidal.

Windom police spotted Clemenson's car that night and began a pursuit before Clemenson veered into the path of a semi.

The truck driver was not hurt.
