Just before noon Sunday, Williams Edward Ruzicka, 53 of Owatonna, was driving a semi with double trailers south on Highway 52 in Olmsted County. The Minnesota State Patrol says as Ruzicka turned to go east on Interstate 90, he was hit by the northbound SUV driven by Jennings Bryan Forstner, 36 of Rochester.

Ruzicka was the only one hurt in the collision and was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A single-vehicle accident then occurred around 1:14 pm in Rice County as Traci Leigh Cone, 41 of Des Moines, was driving south, lost control and struck the median guard cables. A passenger in Cone’s vehicle, Jesse Le Shawhan, 36 of Des Moines, was taken to Northfield Hospital for a non-life threatening injury.
