1 Killed, 2 Hurt When 4 Semis Crash in Olmsted County
STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (AP) - Four semis were involved in two separate crashes minutes apart on the same stretch of interstate in southeastern Minnesota.
The State Patrol says one person died in one of the crashes on Interstate 90 and two others were hurt Monday afternoon near Stewartville. Reports say a semi traveling westbound sideswiped another semi that had pulled over. One of the semis spilled its load. One of the drivers, from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, was injured.
The second crash happened about 10 minutes later in the same area. One driver - identified as 38-year-old Johnathon Schadt of Des Moines, Iowa - was killed and the other was injured. Troopers say traffic on the westbound lanes was detoured for several hours.
