A Shakopee man has been charged with four counts of criminal vehicular operation after a Monday morning crash southwest of Shakopee caused life-threatening injuries to two Chaska women.
Southwest News Media reports 25-year-old Mohamed Abdirahman Abdilahi is charged with running a red light at the intersection of Highway 169 and Highway 41 around 5 a.m. and T-boning a Nissan Altima with his Honda Accord.
The passengers of the Altima, 49-year-old Tracie Ann Peterson and 18-year-old Hanna Joy Peterson, sustained extensive injuries in the crash and were transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center for emergency care and were listed in critical condition Monday.
The crash was observed by a witness and captured on freeway cameras. Abdilahi’s Accord allegedly “swerved over lane lines and ran up on the median prior to the crash.”
Each of the charges against Abdilahi carries a penalty of five years and a $10,000 fine.
