A 20-year-old Oak Park Heights man died July 16 due to the result of a motor vehicle versus commercial vehicle collision.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reported at 6:20 p.m., deputies learned a dump truck was southbound on Manning Avenue North and a Nissan Sentra was northbound. Witnesses on scene reported the Nissan crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic, causing a head on collision with the dump truck. 

Both vehicles had single occupants. The Nissan driver was pronounced dead at the scene after Washington County deputies, Bayport Fie and Lakeview EMS attempted lifesaving measures. 

Minnesota State Patrol assisted on scene.
