Otsego Man Dies in Rollover Crash


A 58-year-old Otsego man is dead after a crash Thursday morning in Mendota Heights.

The State Patrol says Antonio Krastev died at the scene.

The Patrol says at just before 3am, Krastev was driving an SUV eastbound at a high rate of speed in the westbound lanes of Highway 13 when he ran a red light at Highway 55 and then failed to make the curve at Furlong Avenue. The vehicle crossed the median into the eastbound lanes then rolled off the road.

Krastev was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle and was then pinned under the vehicle.

The Patrol says alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash.
