UPDATE: 1 Arrested After 2 Vehicle Crash in Millwood Township

Christopher Lehner, Stearns County Jail

MILLWOOD TOWNSHIP – The Stearns County Sheriff’s Department has released the names of the people involved in a two-vehicle crash early Saturday morning.

The incident happened just before 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of County Road 37 and Mary’s Lake Road in Millwood Township.

A vehicle driven by 30-year-old Joshua Ainali of Sauk Centre was attempting to make a left hand turn onto Mary’s Lake Road when it was struck by a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Christopher Lehner of Upsala.

Ainali is listed in serious condition at St. Cloud Hospital.  Lehner was treated and released from St. Cloud Hospital.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor, and Lehner was later arrested. He’s facing two counts of Criminal Vehicular Operation.

Two passengers were 22-year-old Jeremy Becker and 27-year-old Cody Becker both of Grey Eagle, were also in the crash.  Both the Beckers are expected to recover from their injuries.

Two people were taken to Melrose Hospital, and two others were air lifted to St. Cloud Hospital.
