Two Children Injured In Crash 03 Mar 14

Two children were injured in a 3-vehicle pileup on Highway 60 in Blue Earth County late Saturday morning. A 2007 Chevy Impala driven by 41-year-old Heather Hawkins of Fairmont had slowed down for a snow plow creating whiteout conditions at around 11:30am when it was rear-ended by a 2012 Ford driven by 29-year-old Kevin Jones of Alpha. 34-year-old Terri Penkert of Mankato then lost control of her 2010 Chrysler mini-van and hit the Impala. Hawkins’ 13-year-old passenger and Penkert’s 4-year-old passenger were both hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.
