    PENNOCK, Minn. — Two people are dead after a head-on crash Tuesday evening in southern Minnesota.

    The Minnesota State Patrol says it happened just after 7 p.m. on Highway 12 in Pennock, a few miles northwest of Willmar.

    An eastbound Jeep Wrangler, driven by a 45-year-old Waseca man, collided with a westbound Ford Explorer, driven by a 69-year-old Benson woman.
