A Minnesota storm chaser was killed Saturday in Oklahoma during a multiple-vehicle car crash according to the Star Tribune.

Andy Gabrielson, 24, died on an interstate about 15 miles southwest of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The multiple car pileup occurred when a vehicle was driving the wrong way on the road according to http://www.startribune.com/local/138739799.html.

Gabrielson was a storm chaser working with the Weather Channel, and they gave confirmation that he was killed in the crash according to the Pioneer Press.

Gabrielson had been chasing storms according to close friend and colleague Kory Hartman says the Star Tribune.

Gabrielson frequently supplied the Weather Channel with severe weather footage and appeared on the show "Tornado Hunt." He was not a meteorologist but he seemed to always know where the storms were going to be said Hartman according to theStar Tribune.

Gabrielson leaves behind a 3-year-old daughter says the Star Tribune.
