Fatal Crash in Renville County


A Redwood Falls woman is dead after a crash in Renville County Wednesday afternoon.

The Renville County Sheriff’s Office says 59-year-old Bonita Durbin died at the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened near the intersection of County Road 1 and 760th Avenue, which is about 7 miles south of Danube in Henryville Township.

Authorities say the preliminary investigation indicates Durbin was driving a van northbound on County Road 1 and crossed into the opposing lane of traffic and collided with a semi hauling grain. The collision caused both vehicles to overturn.

The driver of the semi, 37-year-old Justin Hegreberg of Spicer, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The crash happened at about 1:30pm and remains under investigation.
