MOTLEY-A motorist was seriously injured Thursday after being ejected from a passenger car in a multi-vehicle crash in Cass County.

In all, three drivers and a passenger involved in the head-on collision were injured.

The Minnesota State Patrol responded to the crash at 3:56 p.m. on Highway 64 at 96th Street Southwest in Becker Township in Cass County. The state patrol reported a Ford Fusion, driven by Matthew C. Sams, 24, Staples, rear-ended a southbound Chevrolet Silverado pickup and then was pushed into the northbound lane resulting in a head-on crash with a Toyota Camry.

Huewe's passenger, Logan J. Huewe, 14, Elk River, and the driver of the pickup, Nathan L. King, 36, Motley, were treated at the Staples hospital and then released.

*** UPDATE: A multi-vehicle crash reported in Sunday’s Dispatch on Highway 64 in Motley inadvertently stated a Ford Fusion was rear-ended by a southbound Chevrolet Silverado pickup in a crash on Highway 64 at 96th Street Southwest in Becker Township in Cass County. It should have stated the Ford rear-ended the Chevy.
The Dispatch regrets the error.
