REDWOOD FALLS – Minor injuries were reported in a one-vehicle rollover late on New Year’s Day on a rural road north of Redwood Falls.
The Renville County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at 10:48 p.m. Sunday, reporting a one-vehicle accident near the intersection of County Road 1 and County Road 15 in Beaver Falls Township.
Responders at the scene located a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban on its side in the ditch. The vehicle appeared to have gone out of control while traveling south on County Road 1 and entered the ditch, causing the vehicle to roll over one and a half times. Road conditions at the time of the crash were snow-packed and slippery, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
There were two occupants of the vehicle: the driver, Tyler Sander, 30, and Amanda Bernardy, 26, both of Redwood Falls. The Sheriff’s Office said Sander sustained minor injuries but declined medical attention.
The crash remains under investigation but it is believed that both occupants were wearing seatbelts and alcohol was not believed to be a factor. The Renville County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Redwood County Sheriff’s Office.
OLIVIA – Serious injuries were avoided in a three-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon on U.S. Highway 212 in eastern Renville County.
The Minnesota State Patrol said a 2003 Ford Expedition driven by Susan Prescott, 54, of Morton was eastbound on Highway 212 when a sideswipe occurred with a westbound 2016 Kenworth semi driven by Patrick J. Lauer, 57, of Oakdale. A 2011 Dodge Ram, also westbound, then hit debris from the crash.
The State Patrol said Prescott was hurt but her injuries were not life-threatening. The other two drivers were uninjured.
Buffalo Lake Fire and Ambulance and Olivia Ambulance assisted at the scene.
