Driver dead, passenger injured in Eagan rollover crash

A Rochester man died and his wife was injured Sunday afternoon in a rollover crash on Interstate 494 in Eagan.

Harry J. Long III, 66, was driving a GMC Jimmy east on 494 at about 2:30 p.m. when the vehicle rolled near Pilot Knob Road, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Long’s wife, 67-year-old Louise M. Long, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

The GMC Jimmy was totaled in the accident.

Conditions were dry on the five-lane divided highway at the time of the crash, the State Patrol said. Both the driver and passenger were wearing seatbelts, and alcohol is not believed to have been a factor.
