Thu 6-6-2019

(Spencer)-- Authorities say charges are pending in connection with a crash involving multiple vehicles this (Thurs.) morning on Highway 71 on the north side of Spencer.

Police say 27-year-old Megan Lange of Spencer was driving a 2005 Dodge Durango southbound when she veered into the opposite lane of travel, nearly colliding with a law enforcement vehicle. Police say Lange then accelerated, continuing southbound at a high rate of speed. The vehicle left the road and collided with two legally parked vehicles in a nearby parking lot. The impact pushed both of those vehicles into two other ones.

Lange was taken to Spencer Hospital for treatment of possible injuries.

Police say fatigue may have been a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.

Damage to the vehicle driven by Lange was estimated at $8,000. The other four vehicles sustained a combined $50,000 in damage.
