Injuries from Rear-End Collisions in Pine County, MN Involving Volvo Semi Trucks

Last weekend, two people were injured in two rear-end collisions in Pine County. Both involved multiple vehicles, and both chain reactions were started by a 2017 Volvo semi truck hitting another vehicle from behind. The Volvo semi trucks were not the same truck, and there were two drivers, but the similarities of the two accidents is concerning.

Crystal Christian-Harrington Injured in 6-Vehicle Crash

This 6-vehicle crash happened on August 26, 2018.

The six vehicles involved in the crash were traveling southbound on I-35 near Pine City. A Nissan Altima, a mid-size car, slowed down for traffic. The Volvo semi that was traveling directly behind the Nissan rear ended it. Crystal Christian-Harrington, of Coral Springs, Florida, the driver of the Nissan, was injured in the crash and received care at Essentia Health in Sandstone, MN. She was wearing a seat belt.

The force of the initial impact by the Volvo semi truck caused the Nissan to move forward, hitting a Chrysler Sebring, which then hit a Dodge Caravan, which then hit a Honda CRV, which then hit a Volkswagon Tiguan. None of the other occupants of the these other vehicles were seriously injured.

Assisting at the scene were the Pine County Sheriff’s Office, Allina Ambulance, and the Minnesota State Patrol (MSP).
