Rochester Police Officer: ‘It’s Amazing No One Was Killed’
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester police officers called to the scene of a head-on wreck Friday say it was “amazing” no one was killed or seriously hurt.
A Rochester Police Dept. spokesman says the wreck happened around 8:00 PM in the 4000 block of N. Broadway.
The spokesman says the driver of one of the vehicles crossed into the other lane, causing the collision. The RPD spokesman says the male driver of that vehicle was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
The spokesman says one of the vehicles was an SUV and the other was a passenger car. He says the crash "absolutely destroyed the vehicles."
The spokesman says the damage to both vehicles was so extensive, firefighters called to the scene asked the officers who had cut the drivers from the wreckage. Both drivers had actually freed themselves and were outside the vehicles when officers arrived.
The wreck occurred while officers were at the scene of another accident involving a pedestrian who was seriously injured.
