Cedar Avenue crash kills Farmington man, injures four others

Another man in critical condition

A 26-year-old Farmington man was killed and another man is in critical condition after a Sunday rollover night crash on Cedar Avenue near McAndrews Road in Apple Valley.

The Minnesota State Patrol reports Inoncencio Munoz-Gutierrez, 26, of Farmington was killed after a 2000 GMC Savana driven southbound on Cedar Avenue by Solomon Adorno, 31, of Farmington struck a metal guard rail and spun into northbound lane where it was hit by a 2007 Chevy Tahoe.

Adorno is in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center.

A Lakeville family was traveling in the Tahoe, and the driver, Jason M. Bruenig, 39, and Kristi M. Bruenig, 35, suffered minor injuries; daughter Hannah Bruenig, 7, was not injured.

The accident happened just before 6 p.m.

No reason was given as to why the vehicle struck the guard rail. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, and all involved were wearing seat belts, according to the State Patrol.
