Strong Winds Blamed For Motorhome Crash in Dodge County
Dodge Center, MN (KROC-AM News) - Four people from the Faribault area, including two children, were in a motorhome that crashed along Highway 14 while a thunderstorm was moving through Dodge County late Saturday afternoon.
The State Patrol says the motorhome was traveling east in the area just west of Dodge County where the highway narrows down to two lanes when the vehicle was hit by strong crosswinds, which caused the driver to lose control on the wet pavement. The motorhome ended up in the ditch and rolled just before 5 PM.
The driver was identified as 43-year-old Emily Teigen of Warsaw, Minnesota. The State Patrol says she and 9-year-old Gavin Teigen were transported to St. Marys Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A 46-year-old man and 6-year-old girl were also in the motorhome but were not injured.
