Highway 12 crash kills one, injures three

DELANO, MN – A Wednesday evening crash on Highway 12 west of Delano that killed a 40-year-old Cokato woman and injured three other individuals was alcohol-related, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Michael Steer, 24, of Waverly, was driving his 2003 Ford pickup east in the westbound lane of Highway 12 and struck a 2001 Chevrolet Lumina head-on. The Lumina then spun around and struck a 2002 Ford Escort.

Mayla Macon, a passenger in the Lumina who was wearing her seatbelt, was killed. The driver of that vehicle, Dustin Helget, 30, of Cokato, was seriously injured. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Steer, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The Minnesota State Patrol reported that alcohol was detected in Steer’s system at the time of the crash.

The driver of the Escort, Carol Jahnke, 65, of South Haven, was transported to Buffalo Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. She was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash occurred at 10:47 p.m. west of Ebersole Avenue Southwest.

Minnesota reaches all-time population high

McLEOD, WRIGHT, CARVER COUNTIES, MN – More people live in Minnesota than ever before, newly released data from the US Census Bureau shows.

The state’s population was listed at 5,489,594, which is 32,421 more people than in 2014.

The entire US is growing, as well. Since April 1, 2010, the nation has increased by 14,016,480, or 4.54 percent.

In 2016, the US Census Bureau predicts that one American baby will be born every eight seconds, and one person will die every 10 seconds. The population is still expected to increase, though, because of international migration, which will add one person every 29 seconds. Including births, deaths, and migration, the US population is anticipated to grow by one person every 17 seconds.
