REDWOOD FALLS - A Sunday crash involving a State Patrol squad car and two other vehicles injured two people, the Minnesota State Patrol said. The crash was reported at 4:05 p.m. Sunday on Highway 67 in Redwood Falls, a State Patrol report said. A marked State Patrol car driven by Matthew Smith, 39, of Redwood Falls was traveling to the scene of an accident with red lights and siren on when a pickup driven by a 16-year-old male from Seaforth stopped at a stop sign and failed to yield to the squad car, the State Patrol said. The squad car continued southbound and struck a Chevrolet Equinox driven by Christopher Huwe, 27, of Morgan, head-on. Both the squad car and the Equinox came to rest in the ditch north of Highway 67, the State Patrol said.
Smith received non life-threatening injuries in the crash, and was taken to the hospital in Redwood Falls. Darcy Huwe, 28, a passenger in the Equinox, was treated and released for injuries, the State Patrol said. Two children who were also passengers in the Equinox had no apparent injuries, the State Patrol said.
