ROAD?CLOSED?— Emergency workers were at the scene of a fatal car crash for more than three hours Wednesday afternoon on County Road 26, west of Fairmont.

Johnson was transported to Mayo Clinic Health System-Fairmont, with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash occurred two miles east of the Valero ethanol plant near Welcome. Winds were blowing snow onto the roadway, causing slick driving conditions.

Officials closed the road in both directions, starting just west of Fairmont's industrial park while the crash scene was cleared.

The crash remains under investigation.
