A University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor was one of two people killed in a crash in Minnesota on Sunday.
David R. Swanson, 53, of Lincoln and Anna M. Jansen, 88, of St. Michael, Minnesota, were killed in a Sunday morning accident when their vehicles collided, according to a news release from the Renville County Sheriff's Office.
Swanson was the director of the Holland Computing Center and a research professor in computer science and engineering. The Holland Center provides services, including computing support for campus departments, data analytics and storage, training education and counseling.
Four passengers in Swanson's were injured, one critically.
The crash was reported at 11:33 a.m. Sunday at an intersection about eight miles south of Danube.
According to the release, preliminary investigation indicates that a 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander driven by Jansen was going west on a county road and failed to stop at a stop sign. Her vehicle collided with a 2007 Buick LaCrosse driven by Swanson that was heading south.
Both vehicles went into a ditch and overturned.
Swanson's wife, 53-year old Ronda L. Swanson, was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center with critical injuries.
Three of their four children were in the car and are recovering: Abigail J. Swanson, 23; Sophia G. Swanson, 19; and Livia L. Swanson, 15, all of Lincoln.
