On Aug. 13, Bosch was traveling southbound on Minnesota Highway 23 north of Manitoba Street when his vehicle drifted into a left turn lane and rear ended another car, according the Minnesota State Patrol.

Bosch was on his way back from seeing his wife, who had just died five hours before, in St. Cloud, said Tina Erickson, a family friend. This caused Bosch to fall asleep at the wheel and lose control of his vehicle, which rear-ended a vehicle in the left turn lane.

The accident left him with broken ribs and a punctured lung, according to Erickson.

Arrangements are pending with Harvey Anderson Funeral Home in Willmar.
