On This Date in Minnesota History: May 20

May 20, 2000 – Timberwolves guard Malik Sealy was killed in a head-on collision in St. Louis Park, Minn. “He was driving home from a birthday celebration for teammate and best friend Kevin Garnett in downtown Minneapolis when his sports utility vehicle was struck by a pickup truck traveling the wrong way down the highway. The truck was driven by 43-year-old Souksangouane  Phengsene, who survived the accident with head and chest injuries. Neither driver was wearing a seatbelt. Phengsene's airbag deployed, but Sealy's SUV did not have one.”
