PLEASANT GROVE TOWNSHIP, Minn. – Olmsted County sheriff’s investigators say two drivers are hurt after a head-on crash on Monday evening.
Authorities say it happened around 5:45 p.m on County Road 1 and 75th St. SE. Nicolas Hanson, 32, of Rochester, was headed north on County Road 1 in a 1998 Dodge Dakota pickup, and 51-year-old Patricia Wagner, of Rochester, was headed south in a Ford Explorer. They say it appears Wagner was trying to make a left onto 75th St. when the cars crashed.
Wagner, who was wearing a seat belt, went into the west ditch. Hanson was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected into the east ditch when his car rolled.
Both drivers are listed in critical but reportedly have non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash is still under investigation.
