A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of County Roads 3 and 28 sent one of the vehicles in the ditch and people to hospitals on December 31.

According to Fire Chief Ken Pavek, the Montgomery Fire and Ambulance Departments were paged to the scene at approximately 7:10 a.m. The accident included two vehicles, one that landed on its side in the ditch north of County Road 28, while the other remained on the road.

Pavek said North Memorial Air was called to the scene.

He stated that his department closed CR 28 for a brief time to allow the helicopter to land and take off. He noted after the helicopter left the scene, the road was restricted to single lane traffic due to the EMS and Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Departments who were also at the scene.

Pavek said Tom Murray Highway Motors towed the vehicles, and that his department was on the scene for approximately an hour and a half.

At presstime, the sheriff’s department stated the case was still open and information on the accident victims was not available.
