Two construction workers are dead after being hit by a car and thrown 40-50 feet, along 35W in Burnsville Thursday afternoon, according to a KARE report.
Kirk Deamos, a 21-year-old from Kansas City, Mo., lost control of his car in a construction zone after trying to steer away from a construction wall, state patrol spokesman Eric Roeske said, according to a Star Tribune report.
47-year-old Craig Carlson of Ramsey, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The second victim, 44-year-old Ronald Rajkowski of St. Joseph died after being transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center, according to the KARE report.
Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor in the accident, according to Roeske.
