Authorities investigating fatal crash near downtown Oakdale
One man died and two others were injured in a three-vehicle collision early Friday morning south of downtown Oakdale.
The crash occurred at 6:30 a.m. on Albers Road just south of Warnerville Road.
A Honda speeding north on Albers rear-ended a Saturn ahead of it, said Stanisalus County Sheriff’s Lt. Marc Nuno. The Honda driver lost control and the car went into oncoming traffic, where it struck a Ford head on.
The driver of the Honda was declared dead at the scene. The Ford driver was taken to an area hospital with major injuries, and the Saturn driver suffered minor injuries. None of the drivers had passengers in their cars.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Deputy Matthew Orr at 209-869-7162.
