CANNON FALLS, Minn. (AP) -- A Minnesota State Patrol says a trooper responding to a traffic accident slammed into another car in Cannon Falls, killing two people in the other vehicle.

The collision happened Friday about 2:35 p.m. Cannon Falls is about 35 miles southeast of St. Paul.

The trooper was airlifted to a Rochester hospital. The State Patrol says he's being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske says the trooper's squad had its lights flashing and sirens activated. He says the other vehicle pulled out of a parking lot, and the trooper's squad slammed into it.

The collision killed the 78-year-old man driving the other vehicle, and his passenger, a 79-year-old woman.

State Patrol Lt. Col. Matt Langer says authorities haven't determined how fast the trooper was going.
