Wells Truck Driver Involved in Fatal I-94 Crash on Friday Afternoon

A truck driver from Wells was involved in a fatal crash on I-94 Friday Afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says three people died when their Ford Edge was pinned between two semi trucks.

Killed were 65 year old Robert Correll and 63 year old Linda Correll both of Ham Lake and 89 year old Shirley Gatzke of Blaine.

A crash report says the Edge was stopped behind a tractor-trailer at a construction zone on westbound I-94, when a second semi pushed the Ford into the rear of the other semi.

The State Patrol doesn’t identify which semi was stopped and which truck hit the Ford, but one of the truck drivers was identified as 58 year old Kenneth Jarvis of Wells.  Jarvis wasn’t injured in the crash.

The other driver was identified as 49 year old Maxim Rubin.  Rubin was also not injured.
