Three people were taken to hospitals after a crash in Stearns County on Wednesday morning.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to a crash near the intersection of County Road 176 and County Road 11 at about 8:22 a.m.


The sheriff's office said a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee was headed east on County Road 176 when it failed to stop at a stop sign at County Round 11 and struck a 2014 Dodge Ram truck.

The driver of the Jeep, 52-year-old Lorene Meyer, and her front-seat passenger, 53-year-old Thomas Meyer, both of Melrose, were transported to a hospital, and Thomas Meyer was later airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital. The driver of the Dodge, Jason Arnzen, 36, of Melrose, was also taken to a hospital by a private party.

The extent of their injuries is unknown.

The crash remains under investigation.
