2 men hurt in strange crashPublished 12:29pm Monday, July 23, 2012
Two Fergus Falls men were injured early Sunday morning in an odd crash on the north shore of Ten Mile Lake.
According to the county sheriff’s office, Dustin Tiffany, 23, and Zackary Hanson, 24, were traveling together in separate cars, both driving east on County Highway 35 (possibly at a high rate of speed).
Sometime in the early morning hours Sunday, both of their cars left the road, crashing into a line of trees, with Tiffany’s car going through the tree line and partially into Ten Mile Lake.
The crash was reported around 3:30 a.m.
Deputies located the men walking together on the road. Both men had minor injuries and were taken to Lake Region Hospital for treatment.
The men said they had swerved to avoid hitting a deer. The sheriff’s office declined to comment on whether the men were racing.
