St. Peter driver ID’d in fatal semi crash near Dundas 27 Feb 12

The Minnesota State Patrol has released the name of the semi driver killed in a rollover on Highway 3 south of Dundas last week.

64-year-old Gerald R. Gunderson, of St. Peter, was killed Thursday when his southbound semi-tractor trailer left the roadway and went into the east ditch, hitting a field approach and power poles.

A portion of Highway 3 was temporarily closed following the accident. The State Patrol is still investigating, although officials say alcohol did not appear to be a factor and Gunderson was wearing his seat belt.
