Highway 212 Crash 27 Jun 12

Two people were injured on Highway 212 Tuesday afternoon when a dump truck driven by a Henderson man struck a car and sent it careening into the path of a semi-truck. The crash occurred at just after 4:30 Tuesday afternoon east of Highway 101 on Highway 212 in Carver County. The dump truck driven by 50-year-old Dale Jaworski of Henderson hit a 2002 Acura driven by 40-year-old May Xiong of Fridley, causing it to cross the median into oncoming traffic, where it was hit by a semi driven by 50-year-old Steven Schuette, of Lester Prairie. Both Xiong and Schuette were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Jaworski was not hurt. The eastbound lanes of 212 were closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the scene. The incident remains under investigation.
