A Bricelyn man was killed in a three-vehicle accident Tuesday on I-90 east of Blue Earth.
John William Brooks, 80, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which happened just after 5 p.m. in Blue Earth City Township.
The Minnesota State Patrol report says Brooks was eastbound in a 1978 Chevy Nova that was hit by a Ford F-150 pickup, also eastbound. The pickup was driven by Joel Luther Robinson, 36, of Wells. The crash report says after being struck, the Chevy Nova then crossed the centerline and collided with a westbound Winnebago motorhome.
Chad Ryan Yarrington, 44, of Plymouth, Michigan, was driving the Winnebago. Yarrington was transported to United Hospital District in Blue Earth with non-life threatening injuries. There were six passengers in the motorhome, including three young children, ages 9, 6, and 4. Those children weren’t injured. Two teenagers were also in the vehicle – a 17 year-old boy, who was uninjured, and a 15 year-old girl. The teen girl and an adult passenger, Sara Susan Yarrington, 44, were also transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Robinson, the driver of the F-150, was not injured.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Road conditions were dry. The report says Brooks and Robinson were both wearing seat belts.
