MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say a man was killed after his vehicle struck the back of a farm implement on a highway in Meeker County.

The Star Tribune reports the crash occurred about 10:20 p.m. Saturday on Hwy. 15 in Collinwood Township, roughly 10 miles north of Hutchinson and 50 miles west of the Twin Cities.

The Highway Patrol says the car’s motorist was a 62-year-old man from nearby Darwin. His identity was not immediately released.

The patrol says the man’s vehicle struck the right rear side of a planter being pulled by a tractor after it just pulled onto the highway from a field.
