AVON (AP) -- Investigators returned Saturday to the scene of a fiery crash that killed two people on Interstate 94 in central Minnesota.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Kevin Smith said an eastbound sport-utility vehicle crossed over the median and collided with a motor home around 7:50 p.m. Friday, about two miles east of Avon in Stearns County.
A pickup truck and another SUV then collided with the wreckage, but the people in those vehicles were not hurt, Smith said.
Dead at the scene were the driver of the first SUV, Michael Allen Rakow, 45, of Champlin, and the driver of the motor home, Wayne Leonard Carlson, 66, of Cambridge. Carlson's son was hurt, but Smith said his injuries were not life-threatening.
The westbound lanes of I-94 were closed for about 3 1/2 hours.
