Dakota County Crash Kills Two Fathers
Saturday night a crash in Vermillion Township in Dakota County, claimed the life of two fathers. It happened at the intersection of Goodwin Avenue and 190th Street East.
According to the accident report a Ford F-150 pickup driven by Jon Fontaine, 36, of Farmington, with his 12-year-old son in the vehicle, was headed south on Goodwin and did not slow for the stop sign at 190th. The truck went through the intersection and collided with a Chevrolet Traverse headed west on 190th, and then both vehicles into the ditch, according to the sheriff's office.
Jillayne Lazer, 33, of Rosemount, was driving the Traverse with her husband, Jared Lazer, 34, and their three children, ages 5, 5 and 2. The report says that both Jared Lazer and Jon Fontaine died at the scene. The other five people involved in the crash were brought to the hospital with apparently non-life-threatening injuries.
The Minnesota State Patrol is helping to investigate the crash.
