On January 13 at about 10:30 a.m. a Pine County deputy was travelling north on Highway 23 between Askov and Bruno. The deputy observed a pickup travelling south on Highway 23 drifting into the northbound lane and then eventually off the road into the west side ditch.

The deputy made contact with passengers of the truck who thought the male driver was having a heart attack. CPR was started as well as use of an AED.

First responders from Askov and Bruno fire departments as well as Essentia Ambulance personnel arrived on scene.

Despite resuscitative efforts the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The deceased is a 64-year-old male from Duluth. The driver’s name is being withheld until family is notified.

No passengers in the vehicle were injured.
