Paul Langseth (left) is presented Thursday with the Meritorious Citizenship Award by Minnesota State Patrol Capt. Bruce Verdoes in recognition of Langseth’s efforts at the scene of an Aug. 31, 2015, crash near Heron Lake. Langseth assisted at the scene after one semi rear-ended another semi on Minnesota 60. On impact, one truck - a tanker containing soybean oil - jack-knifed and skidded down the left lane of eastbound Minnesota 60, and Langseth and State Patrol Sgt. Ron Richards worked together to free its driver. “We want to recognize (Langseth’s) contribution and heroism,” Verdoes told the Daily Globe in September. “That’s what we consider it. He put his life in harm’s way. When we can get some assistance, it’s much appreciated.”
