A 21-year-old La Crescent man was killed in a one-vehicle rollover on County Road 11 south of Ridgeway on Saturday night.
Caleb Leslie Hughes was alone in his vehicle when it left the roadway, became airborne, rolled and came to rest in the ditch, according to reports issued by the Winona County Sheriff’s Department. Police were called to the scene just after 8 p.m. after a passing motorist noticed Hughes’ vehicle in the ditch.
No one witnessed the crash, but police believe Hughes left the roadway, drove on the left shoulder for 231 feet before striking a driveway embankment. The vehicle became airborne for 61 feet, according to police, then rolled. Hughes was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said he was not wearing a seatbelt.
