|Wisconsin crash leads to death of Minneota man|
By Byron Higgin
Opdahl passed away about 8 p.m. Sunday night at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN.
He was injured after his Corvette, driven by 62-year-old Janice Pedersen, left the roadway on a curve and entered a ditch in front of the Ralston Purina plant in Hager City, WI.
The car rolled several times.
The accident occurred at 5:39 p.m. Saturday on Hwy. 35.
Pedersen was ejected from the vehicle and both were flown by Mayo helicopter to Rochester.
Opdahl’s death sent pangs of disbelief through “The Roundup,” the coffee-shop-gathering hole for Minneota men.
