A southbound Dodge Caravan driven by 36-year-old Yasin Yusuf of Eden Prairie struck the rear of a GMC pickup truck driven by 42-year-old Ryan Haley of Mankato. The pickup was then pushed into a Ford Focus driven by 22-year-old Abigail Dawson of Le Sueur, which was then pushed into a Ford 500 driven by 48-year-old Patricia Dawson of Le Sueur. Yusuf and Abigail Dawson were treated for minor injuries at the scene. The damage to the Caravan was severe, while the other vehicles took minor to moderate damage.
