Tragically, officials found that Hayden Edstrom was unresponsive and lacked a pulse. Despite their swift and valiant efforts to save him, the life-saving measures performed by emergency responders proved unsuccessful. Regrettably, Hayden Edstrom was pronounced dead at the scene.
Upon conducting a thorough investigation into the accident, law enforcement ascertained that the young driver had been traveling westbound on 30th Street when the vehicle veered off the road, entering the ditch on the south side. It continued along the ditch for approximately 100 yards before re-entering the roadway. Unfortunately, it did not stop there, crossing both lanes of traffic and eventually rolling into the north ditch, where it finally came to a rest.
In the wake of this heartbreaking incident, Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen expressed his heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies. He extended the thoughts and prayers of the entire Sheriff’s Office to Hayden Edstrom’s grieving family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.
The loss of a young life is a tragic reminder of the importance of safe driving practices and serves as a somber call for vigilance on the roads. As the community mourns the passing of Hayden Edstrom, it is essential to reflect on the impact of such accidents and the need for continued efforts to ensure road safety for all.
