Gregg Ronald Orloff, 64, was killed after he swerved to avoid a BMW sedan that had slowed for a traffic signal on westbound Highway 55 on the approach to Argenta Trail. The Minnesota State Patrol incident report lists Orloff's residence as Cottage Grove.
Orloff couldn't stop fast enough, the report stated, and his dump truck clipped the right side of the BMW, rolled on its side and went off the road. The crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. Monday.
The driver of the BMW was not injured. Alcohol was not involved, the report said. Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
Inver Grove Heights police and firefighers responded. The crash is under investigation.
Funeral arrangements are unclear.
