Verndale man in critical condition after crash in Otter Tail County

OTTERTAIL, Minn. - A Verndale man is in critical condition after a three-vehicle crash Thursday east of Ottertail, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

James G. Foster, 78, was driving a 1994 Chrysler Concorde sedan eastbound on Highway 108 at about 7:43 p.m. He was changing course to continue eastbound on Highway 52 when he failed to yield for a westbound 2004 Chevy Trailblazer, the patrol stated in a news release.

The SUV hit the passenger side of the sedan, spinning it around. The sedan then collided with a 2003 Dodge truck parked at a stop sign.

Foster was taken to Tri-County Hospital in Wadena.

The other parties involved in the accident were either treated and released or not injured.
