Two Injured in 2 Vehicle Collision Sunday Evening, East of Blue Earth

Faribault County First Responders were summoned to a two vehicle, personal injury accident on Sunday evening at a rural intersection east of Blue Earth.


Twenty four year old Lane Anderson, of Delavan, was traveling south on County Road 109 when he collided with a vehicle operated by 52 year old Kevin Steinhauer of Frost, which was traveling east on County Road 16.
