According to the State Patrol report:

Southbloom was heading southbound in his 2003 Audi Quattro on Highway 61 in Wabasha County near milepost 57 when the vehicle rear-ended a tractor drive by Jordan. Road conditions were dry, and authorities did not find hazardous material in the roadway that might have been a contributing factor to the crash.

Southbloom sustained non-life-threatening injuries; Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is unknown if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
