A Wadena man was seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash Saturday, Oct. 12, on Highway 10 in Wadena Township.
The Minnesota State Patrol reports Arthur George Tellers, 87, attempted to cross the eastbound lanes of Highway 10 at 141st Avenue in in his Chevrolet Impala when he was struck by a Ram Truck driven by 25-year-old Ronal Peter Kremers of Rockville.
A Dodge Stratus, driven by 23-year-old Mitchell Lee Tiede of Verndale, was behind Kremers’ truck. Tiede’s car avoided hitting the truck but then struck Tellers’ car before Tellers came to rest in the median.
Tellers, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported to St. Cloud Hospital for life-threatening injuries.
Tiede, Kremers and Kremers’ passenger, 22-year-old Kali Jo Kremers, were not injured. All parties were wearing seatbelts.
The state patrol was assisted on scene by the Wadena Police Department and Verndale Fire Department.
