LONG LAKE (WCCO) — One person is in the hospital with a serious injury after a head on crash involving a cattle truck in Long Lake Monday afternoon, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
The Patrol says the accident, which occurred at 2:28 p.m., involved an Audi A6, a Honda Civic and a Peterbuilt Truck, which was carrying cattle.
According to the Patrol’s report, the cattle truck was traveling eastbound on Hwy 12 when the driver noticed the Audi swerving, so the driver of the semi swerved to the right and hit a guard rail. The Audi then struck the semi and spun out.
After seeing the crash, the driver of the Honda attempted to stop on the right shoulder, started to slide and ended up striking the driver of the Audi, who was outside the car.
The driver of the Audi was taken to the hospital with a serious injury.
Both the driver of the cattle truck and the Honda suffered no apparent injures.
WCCO-TV crews that were on scene report that some cattle were killed in the accident.
Highway 12 is closed both ways at Wayzata Boulevard.
