Rosemount woman injured in roundabout crash

A Rosemount woman suffered serious injury in a two-vehicle collision Friday night at the roundabout at Highway 3 and 194th Street in Dakota County, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

Elizabeth D. Nelson, 50, was driving south on Highway 3 at about 10:20 p.m. March 1 when her Toyota Corolla jumped the curb in the roundabout, struck a sign and entered the oncoming lane of traffic, colliding head-on with a Honda CR-V.

Nelson was transported to Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville with serious injuries. Alcohol was detected in her system and she was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, the State Patrol said.

The passenger in Nelson’s vehicle – her daughter, 23-year-old Faith M. Nelson of Loganville, Ga. – suffered minor injury in the crash and was also transported to the hospital.

The driver of the Honda CR-V, 62-year-old Kolene M. Logan of Breezy Point, Minn., and her passenger, 38-year-old Aleah S. Holland of Eden Prairie, received minor injuries in the crash, though neither required ambulance transport. No alcohol was detected in Logan’s system.

Damage to both vehicles was “moderate,” the State Patrol said, and both were towed from the accident scene.
