Duluth News-Tribune, Minn.
Mar. 15--A cable television network this weekend will feature the work of a Duluth police officer whose investigation helped determine who was driving a vehicle that crashed and killed a 28-year-old woman.
Duluth traffic investigator Tom Stolee will portray himself, with actors playing other roles in an episode titled "Mystery Driver" on the Discovery Health Channel's (cable Ch. 110 in Duluth) "Accident Investigator" series.
On July 30, 2003, Winona Lynn Dickenson of Duluth was killed when a vehicle driven by Douglas Robert Olson failed to negotiate a curve at the intersection of West Michigan Street and Carlton Street. The vehicle struck a road sign, sheared off a telephone pole, became airborne and landed on its roof, pinning Dickenson beneath.
