My name is Brad Haugland. My buddies and me were heading to Outing for deer hunting for the weekend, when we came upon this accident. We were one of the first people in the line of cars. A very sad scene.
That stretch of highway is crazy. People were passing us all the time on the way up and it was even worse on the way back. It was raining on Sunday night and they were still going by us. People were traveling at a high rate of speed (70 miles per hour at times).
I just had a baby boy 5 months ago and when I got back to the cities (South St Paul) and looked up this story on the Internet it really bothered me. How about patrolling this stretch of road a little better? I have made this trip plenty of times and it's the same every Friday and Sunday.
