ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) It's been a deadly holiday weekend on Minnesota's roads and highways.

The State Patrol says the driver of a pickup was killed in a rollover crash on Minnesota Highway 200 in Norman County just after 2:30 Saturday morning. The pickup was eastbound when it left the road, traveled in the ditch for a distance, and then hit a field approach and rolled. The pickup came to rest on its wheels. The driver was ejected and killed. No name has been released yet. Police departments from Ada and Twin Valley and the Norman County Sheriff's Office assisted the State Patrol.

A St. Paul man was killed in a single vehicle crash in Dakota County on Thursday night. Eighty year-old David Jones was eastbound on Highway 110 at Dodd Road in Mendota Heights when he went off the road and struck a tree. Jones was ejected from the jeep he was driving and died of his injuries.

And a Waite Park man was killed Thursday in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 10 and Benton County Road 33. Thirty five year-old Ahmed Abdulle failed to yield at a stop sign and struck a car headed northbound on Highway 10. Abdulle was killed in the crash. Two others--55 year-old Hope Morrison of Rice and 20 year-old Eric Shelley of Onamia-- were injured and taken to St. Cloud Hospital.
