A Kenworth semi truck driven by a man from Eden Valley, MN, was traveling eastbound on County Road 10. A Freightliner semi truck was traveling southbound on Minnesota Highway 75. The Kenworth and Freightliner collided at the intersection. Both drivers were injured. The Minnesota State Patrol (MSP) classified this crash as a broadside accident.
The Minnesota State Patrol was assisted by the Pipestone County Sheriffs Office, Pipestone Fire and Rescue, Pipestone Ambulance, and Lake Benton Fire and Rescue.
The MSP preliminary investigation report does not indicate which driver, if either, was at fault. Although there are cases where neither driver is at fault, it is likely that one of the drivers was. If so, it is likely that a trucking company or another business is also legally liable for the crash, meaning the injured driver who is not at fault (or only partially at fault) may have a claim (right to file a lawsuit) against that company.
