LP man involved in crash near St. Cloud

STEARNS COUNTY, MN – A man from Lester Prairie was involved in a two-vehicle crash south of St. Cloud Wednesday morning, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The state patrol reported that Donald Charlie Eastman, 75, of Lester Prairie was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer north on Highway 15 just south of 225th Street in St. Augusta at 8:13 a.m. Feb. 21 when his vehicle rear-ended a 2016 Toyota Highlander driven by Mathias Arnie Dahl, 73, of Hutchinson.

The Highlander hit a tree, and the state patrol reported that Dahl was transported to Centra Care in St. Cloud for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

No injuries were reported for Eastman. The airbags were deployed in both vehicles. Dahl was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and Eastman was not.
