ROCHESTER, Minn. - Authorities have released the name of a man killed Monday in a two-vehicle accident.

Jerome Wickert, of Rochester, was killed when his vehicle struck another vehicle at the intersection of 55th St. and 26th Ave. NW. The crash happened just before 6 p.m.

Police said Wickert was driving a Chrysler Town and Country van, and it was swerving prior to hitting a Lexus SUV, which was driven by a 60-year-old male.

The 60-year-old and another passenger were hospitalized.

The forensic mapping unit was on scene Monday, but the findings will likely take weeks or months.
