Three Vehicles Crash On Hwy 212 16 Jan 14

A 76-year-old Plato woman was injured in a 3-vehicle crash on Highway 212 near Glencoe Wednesday evening. It happened shortly after 5:30pm at the intersection with Dairy Avenue. A Toyota Sienna driven by 33-year-old Harish Joshi of Gaylord was crossing Highway 212 when Joshi apparently failed to see a Dodge Caravan driven by 78-year-old Kenneth Franke of Plato. The 2 vehicles collided as Franke attempted to avoid the Toyota, but his Caravan then hit a Peterbilt semi driven by a 49-year-old Missouri man. Franke’s passenger in the Caravan, 76-year-old Maya Franke was the only one hurt in the crash. She was taken to the Waconia Hospital to be treated for non life-threatening injuries.
