The Sibley County Sheriff’s Office says poor road conditions and speed are believed to be factors in a crash east of Gaylord early Wednesday morning.
The Sheriff’s Office says at 4:46am, they received a call of a three vehicle accident about 2 miles east of Gaylord on Higway 5.
When a deputy arrived on scene, he became aware that a BMW driven by 49-year-old Eddie Smith of Arlington was being pulled from the ditch by a John Deere payloader. As the BMW was being removed, 62-year-old Raymond Gritz of Waverly was approaching in an SUV and as he attempted to pass the vehicles, he lost control of his vehicle and hit the BMW.
The BMW sustained heavy damage, the SUV sustained moderate damage.
Authorities say there were no injuries.
