Head-On Crash On Hwy 60 18 Feb 13

Four people were seriously injured in a head-on crash on Highway 60 in Blue Earth County early Saturday morning. It happened at about 3:30am, and the State Patrol says that the highway was wet at the time. A 1983 Honda Civic driven by 18-year-old Amy Weinandt of St. Peter was reportedly travelling eastbound in the westbound lane when it collided head-on with a 1991 Chevy truck driven by 21-year-old Kyle Allen of Webster. Weinandt and her passengers, 20-year-old Sebastian Gilbertson of Mankato, 19-year-old Tyler Cluka of Kasota, and 23-year-old Michael Fletcher of Mankato all suffered serious injuries and were hospitalized in Mankato. Weinandt has since been transferred, and the others are recovering. Another passenger received only minor injuries as well. The truck driver was not hurt. The State Patrol says that both drivers had alcohol in their systems at the time of the crash.
