COON RAPIDS, Minn. - Authorities in Coon Rapids say one person is dead after a head-on crash caused by a man driving the wrong way.

Squads were called to a crash scene just after 11:30 p.m. Thursday on Highway 10 near Egret Blvd. and Hanson Blvd. They soon learned that a 30-year-old Tyler Trelford from East Bethel was driving his pickup the wrong way on Highway 10 when he apparently realized his mistake and stopped in the center lane.

That's when the driver of another truck collided with him head-on.

Trelford, the wrong way driver, died on the scene. The driver of the other vehicle, a 62-year-old man from Andover, was treated and released at the scene.

The accident remains under investigation.
