A New Ulm woman, Sharon Ann Portner, age 82, was killed Thursday afternoon in a New Ulm collision.

A crash report says at about 2 p.m., a BMW 435 driven by John Roy Deleo, age 53, of Lake Crystal, was southbound on Highway 68, and a northbound Mitsubishi Outlander driven by Portner was northbound on Highway 68 when the vehicles collided at the 15th South St intersection.

DeLeo was transported to New Ulm Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.  The state patrol says alcohol was detected in DeLeo’s system. DeLeo is booked in the Brown County Jail on potential charges of criminal vehicular homicide – operating a vehicle with extreme negligence under the influence of alcohol and DWI.
