A 34-year-old man died in a two-vehicle car crash Monday evening, Jan. 27, in Lonsdale.

Anthony Joseph Mancino, of Glencoe, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident that happened at the intersection of Highway 19 and County Road 2. It occurred at 5:24 p.m.

Mancino was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Mancino was traveling westbound on Hwy. 19 in his 2010 Kia Rio. David Ludwig Wolf, 72, of Northfield was driving his 2012 Audi Q5 eastbound on CR 2 when the vehicles collided at the intersection.

Wolf did not receive any injuries as a result of the accident and wasn’t taken to a healthcare facility. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

The airbags in both vehicles were deployed. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

Mancino worked for Lonsdale Auto Works. On the site’s Facebook page, owner Scott Pelava posted, “Life can be changed in the blink of an eye. That was once again proven Monday evening when one of our team didn't make it home to his family. Tony Mancino's promising future was cut short in a tragic car crash on the edge of Lonsdale tonight. Hug your family & tell them you love them. Enjoy the laughs with friends. Live your life because you only get one.”

The Lonsdale Fire Department, Rice County Sheriff’s Office, Lonsdale Police Department and Northfield Ambulance assisted on the scene.
