Meteorologist from Mexico dies in I-90 crash while storm chasing with others in Minnesota

The group's driver said he hit a downed power line and stopped; that's when a semi hit the car from behind.

A woman among four weather experts out storm chasing in wind-battered southwestern Minnesota died in a crash on the interstate, the car's driver said Thursday from his hospital bed.

The wreck occurred late Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 90 just east of Worthington as springtime storms swept across the southern Minnesota, according to the State Patrol.

"We were doing some storm chasing," Chilean meteorologist Diego Campos said, when his car hit a downed electrical power line. "The storm was really bad, and we were trying to get out of there."

Campos, 37, said that while the car was stopped on eastbound I-90, a semitrailer truck hit his vehicle from behind. [snip]

1. That is sad

It was a dangerous storm. 6-7" of rain and 80mph winds.
