Canby, MN Man Seriously Injured in Carver Co Crash 15 May 17

A Canby, Minnesota man was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in Carver County Saturday night.

The State Patrol says 38-year-old Jason Abney was taken to HCMC for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The Patrol says Abney was traveling West on Highway 212 in Norwood-Young America when he ran a red light at Faxon Road and T-Boned a pickup that was traveling South on Faxon Road, to go eastbound on 212.

The driver of the pickup, 16-year-old Jacob Anderson of Cologne, suffered non-life threatening injuries that apparently did not require hospital treatment.

The State Patrol says alcohol was detected in Abney’s system, but did not say if it was a factor in the crash.

The crash happened just before 8pm.
