BROOKLYN CENTER - Two women from Willmar were injured in a three-vehicle accident Monday afternoon near Brooklyn Center.

According to the State Patrol, a 1999 Dodge Caravan driven by Sarah Lynette Fernandez, 41, of Willmar, was traveling east on Interstate 694 when it sideswiped a 1997 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Neil Stanley Burch, 71, of Brooklyn Park, on the ramp that heads north on Highway 252.

After sideswiping the Malibu, the Caravan drove over the grassy curb and was traveling on the east Interstate 694 ramp when it collided head-on with a north-bound Ford F-150 truck driven by Jacob Andrew Hardie, 21, of Mound.
