Saturday in Dakota County, multiple vehicles collided, resulting in the death of a 17-year-old and the injury of two others. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the accident occurred just before 2:30 p.m. on Saturday in Vermillion Township near the intersection of 160th Street East and Freeborn Avenue.
According to officials, a Toyota Corolla travelling east on 160th Street and pausing to make a left turn onto Freeborn Avenue was rear-ended by a Jeep driven by a 49-year-old woman from Hastings. The Jeep forced the Toyota into the westbound lane, where a Chrysler Town and County struck it head-on.
The van struck the passenger side of the Toyota, and officials reported that the 17-year-old driver, Rodrigo Leon Dooley, was catapulted from the vehicle. To avoid potential conflicts of interest, only the Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the cause of the collision, as the driver of the Jeep is a dispatcher for Dakota 911. Troopers reported that Dooley did not survive the collision.
The Farmington Area Public Schools, where Dooley went to school, released a statement following news of his death. “We were deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Rodrigo Dooley, a 12th-grade learner at Farmington High School. He had been a part of our learning community since kindergarten and attended Riverview Elementary School, Robert Boeckman Middle School, and Farmington High School. This loss will be felt throughout our district as Rodrigo had many connections across the three buildings he attended.”
The driver of the Jeep and a woman riding in the Toyota were also injured, but troopers said the injuries were non-life-threatening. 160th Street between Fisher Avenue and Goodwin Avenue was closed on Saturday but has since reopened.
