Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The State Patrol in Rochester is reporting a teenage girl was injured in a two-car crash Friday evening.

It was reported around 6:30 PM on Highway 30 in Ellendale. The State Patrol says 17-year-old Sydney Hall was driving west when her car collided with an eastbound car driven by 38-year-old Matthew Springsteel of Austin.

He was not injured, while the Owatonna teenager was transported by ambulance to the Owatonna Hospital with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.


Another injury crash was reported about 10 minutes earlier in Rice County.

The State Patrol says 55-year-old Ricardo Morales of Faribault was driving an SUV north on Highway 3 about 2 miles north of Faribault when the vehicle left the roadway and crashed in the ditch.

He was taken to the Faribault hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


A third injury crash occurred Friday morning on I-90 about halfway between Austin and Albert Lea. The State Patrol says 57-year-old Michael Langstaff of Austin was riding a motorcycle west on the freeway when he lost control, entered the median, and crashed into the guardrail.

Langstaff was not wearing a helmet, and the State Patrol says his injuries were life-threatening. He was transported by Mayo Clinic ambulance to the Mayo Clinic Health Care System Hospital in Albert Lea for treatment.
