Crash Leads To Criminal Charges 21 Feb 12

A 20-year-old man from Gibbon faces multiple criminal charges following a 2-vehicle crash just east of Fairfax early Sunday morning. The crash happened at approximately 3:42am on Sunday on Highway 19 about two miles east of Fairfax. 25-year-old Michael T. Zeidler of Redwood Falls was apparently driving a 2010 Ford Escape that was rear-ended by a 2012 Kia Soul driven by Jorge Munoz Jr of Gibbon. Both vehicles came to a stop on the shoulder of the roadway following the crash, and no one was injured, but Munoz was arrested at the scene and is being held in the Renville County Jail on DWI and other alcohol and traffic violations. The crash was investigated by the Renville County Sheriff’s Office.
