Kasson, MN (KROC AM News) - A Hayfield teenager was seriously hurt in a traffic crash in rural Dodge County Monday.

Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose says the head-on accident happened around 5:30 pm on 250th Ave (County Road 13) at approximately 685th Street in Canisteo Township.  The site is several miles south of Kasson.


A pickup truck and a car were involved.  Deputies arrived to find one person lying on the ground and an unconscious victim in the car.

Rose says the truck was driven by 80-year-old Ardean Bjornson of rural Hayfield.  He was driving south on 250th Ave when his truck collided with the northbound car that had crossed the centerline.

The car was driven by 18-year-old Tyler Maas-Schlie of Owatonna. Rose says Maas-Schlie suffered what appeared to be life-threatening injuries and had to be extricated from his car.

Bjornson appeared to have minor injures. A passenger identified as Kevin Bjornson suffered serious injuries. Both were transported to St Marys Hospital.
