A correction to the story about the two people injured, one seriously, in the rear-end crash near Plato Monday afternoon.
91-year-old Florence Becker of Hutchinson was taken to the Glencoe Hospital for treatment of serious injuries. She was a passenger in car driven by 60-year-old Janice Schmidtbauer, of Fort Collins, Colorado. Schmidtbauer was taken to Glencoe Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
It was originally reported that Schmidtbauer was driving eastbound on Highway 212 in a construction zone when she rear-ended a pickup. That is incorrect. The pickup, driven by 29-year-old Jeremy Widmer of Norwood, was eastbound on Highway 212 and rear-ended the Schmidtbauer vehicle.
Widmer was not injured.
The crash happened just after 3:30pm.
