Three southwestern Minnesota women were injured when their vehicles collided in Brown County Monday evening.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, at about 7:18 p.m. on Oct. 10, Samantha Ann Matter, age 18, of Sanborn, was driving a 2013 Ford Edge eastbound on Highway 14. Near the intersection with Brown County Road 16, Matter’s Ford was rear-ended from an eastbound 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo being driven by Kya Maria Diaz, age 23, of Darfur.

Matter and Diaz were both transported to the hospital in Sleepy Eye with non-life threatening injuries, as was Matter’s passenger, Lexie Nicole Vogel, age 18, of Springfield.

Assisting on the scene were the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, the Sleepy Eye Ambulance, and the Springfield Police, Fire, and Ambulance Departments.
