A Twin Cities man leading a pack of Corvette drivers on a pleasure ride crashed while speeding and died north of the metro, officials said.
The wreck occurred in Chisago Lake Township on Lofton Avenue near 250th Street about 10 a.m. Saturday, the Chisago County Sheriff's Office said.
The Sheriff's Office identified the driver who died as David A. McLean, 38, of Brooklyn Park.
Sheriff's Capt. Derek Anklan said Wednesday that the other drivers estimated they were traveling about 75 miles per hour when McLean crashed on the straight stretch of rural road.
Anklan said the four drivers are in a Corvette club and were out for a pleasure ride.
According to the Sheriff's Office:
Four Corvettes were heading south on Lofton, where the lead driver lost control, went off the road and hit a utility pole. The car rolled several times and came to rest upside down.
McLean was pinned beneath the wreckage of his black 1996 Corvette and died.
"Speed appears to be a contributing factor" to the crash, a Sheriff's Office statement read.
