Storm Chaser Killed in Severe Weather Crash, Colleague Says

MINNEAPOLIS—A storm-chasing meteorologist died in a crash that authorities said was caused by downed power lines as severe storms brought damaging winds, heavy rain and a few reports of tornadoes to Minnesota.
The wreck on Interstate 90 in southwest Minnesota Wednesday evening killed Martha Llanos Rodriguez, of Mexico City, Mexico, when a car in which she was riding attempted to avoid the power lines on the roadway and was struck by a semi. Three others in the vehicle, including Chilean meteorologist Diego Campos, were injured.
“We were doing some storm chasing,” Campos told the Star Tribune from his hospital bed, when his car hit a power line in Nobles County. “The storm was really bad, and we were trying to get out of there.”
