3 injured in crash on U.S. Highway 10

Body: 

FRAZEE, Minn. – Three people were injured after their vehicle was rear-ended about noon Sunday, Jan. 14, on U.S. Highway 10 near Frazee, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

The driver, Jeffrey Allan Miron, 46, and passengers Julie Ann Miron, 46, and Jacob Dale Miron, 13, all from Brooklyn Center, Minn., were taken to a medical center in Perham with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

The driver of the other vehicle, Alexander Stephen Splonskowski, 19, of Frazee, was not injured.

The Mirons were eastbound in a Kia Sportage in the right lane alongside a semi and Splonskowski was behind them, according to the Patrol. About 12:30 p.m., snow from the semi obscured Splonskowski’s vision and led his Chevy Tahoe to slam into the back of the Sportage at about 65 mph, “resulting in heavy damage to both vehicles.”

The road was snowy or icy at the time, the Patrol said. Everyone involved wore their seat belts, and alcohol was not a factor.
