A 69-year-old Hastings man died Jan. 10 after being struck by a semi-truck on Vermillion Street four days prior.
Leander Reinardy died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul on Sunday. The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the crash and has yet to release many details about the accident or the actual cause of death.
What is known is that Reinardy was on foot and attempting to cross Vermillion Street near 12th Street around 6 p.m. when he was struck by a semi-truck.
Reinardy's brother, Gene Reinardy, said Leander's arm had to be amputated and he had several cracked ribs.
In his obituary, Reinardy's family remember him as an Army veteran who liked fishing, hunting, gardening and playing cards. He was the father of three children.
Leander was the sixth of eight kids in his family, Gene said, and they grew up on a farm outside of New Trier.
Gene remembered that as a kid, Leander did a lot of hunting and fishing and he was good at working on cars.
Reinardy's funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m., Jan. 14 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Hastings.
