The 11th annual “Ride the Root River Trail” wagon ride ended in tragedy on Wednesday, September 3 when a large dead elm tree fell across the trail hitting one of the wagons.
Killed was Marty Quandt, 53, of Rochester. Two other passengers were hospitalized. According to Fillmore County Sheriff Chief Deputy Daryl Jensen, multiple wagons were being pulled along the trail between Lanesboro and Whalan when a large tree that had been dead for a long time fell. The tree struck the last wagon in the train. The accident took place at the mile 14 marker along the trail, approximately 1 1/2 miles west of Whalan. The annual event, which is sponsored by Semcac, the DNR and Historic Bluff County, provides an opportunity for the handicapped and elderly, who are not able to use the bike trail on their own, to enjoy the scenery along the Root River. Preston and Lanesboro ambulances, as well as Mayo One, responded to the accident.
