ROCHESTER, Minn. – A two-vehicle accident injured one person Monday morning in Olmsted County.

54-year-old Barbara Jean Daily of Chatfield was driving north on U.S. Highway 52 and tried to pass a northbound semi driven by 61-year-old Richard Howard Utecht of Onalaska, Wisconsin. The Minnesota State Patrol says the semi was in the left lane and Daily’s car was in the middle lane and as the semi moved into the middle lane, it hit car.

Daily spun out and struck the median wall south of 16th Street. She was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital for what is described as a non-life threatening injury. Utecht was not harmed.

The State Patrol says both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
