A 2014 Ford Fusion being driven by 47-year-old Robert Mcintosh of Rochester, came to a stop in the left lane due to the stopped traffic. A Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by a 60-year-old Pelican Rapids woman then came to a stop behind the Fusion.
A 2006 Volvo S40 Sedan, driven by 19-year-old Serena Malecha of Northfield, failed to slow down in time then rear-ended the Jeep which then caused the Jeep to rear-end the Fusion.
At the time of the crash, road conditions were reported to be dry.
Mcintosh was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester by a Mayo ambulance. Also assisting the Minnesota State Patrol at the scene was the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.
