(Richmond MN-) A woman and child from Eden Valley were hurt in a chain-reaction crash on Highway 23 near Richmond yesterday afternoon. The state patrol says it happened at 4:14 p.m. at the intersection with County Road 43 west of Richmond. A mini-van driven by 39-year-old Teresa Coulter of Eden Valley was westbound on 23 and stopped to make a left turn onto 43 when she was rear-ended by a pickup driven by 39-year-old Andrew Gertken of St. Cloud. The impact pushed the mini-van into oncoming traffic where it was hit by an eastbound SUV driven by 60-year-old Jon Fogelberg of Randall. Coulter and her 3-year-old son were taken to the St. Cloud Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
