Rollover Accident Causes Minor Injuries in Downtown Mankato

Posted: Updated:

It's been a busy afternoon in Mankato for first responders as multiple accidents occurred in the area. The first one to tell you about is a rollover that happened in downtown.

Witnesses say the driver of a Chevy Blazer sustained only minor injuries. The driver of the van was not injured. Two children in that van were not hurt either.

Authorities on scene tell News 12 the brakes apparently failed on the S–U–V.

Tim Cline says, "I saw the vehicle that was upside–down, the Blazer, coming from Main toward the intersection going downtown and the red van over there was coming through the lights and they happened to t–bone. And the car here, obviously the impact was so great that it ended up on its roof."

Authorities say all of the drivers and passengers were wearing their seatbelts.
