Stearns County Car Crash


An Avon man walks away after crashing his vehicle into Lower Spunk Lake on Friday evening. Stearns County deputies responded to the crash in the 34000 block of County Road 9 in Avon Township.

According to Sheriff Steve Soyka, the 2012 Chevrolet Chrysler 200 left the roadway and entered the ditch hitting an approach. The Chrysler continued through a yard hitting a raised flower bed garden and down the hill into Lower Spunk Lake.

An Avon first responder and good Samaritans helped the driver out of the vehicle. The driver did not sustain any injuries.

A medical condition is believed to be the cause of the crash. Distracted driving or impaired driving were not contributing factors.

A tow truck removed the Chrysler from the lake.

Stearns deputies were assisted by Avon Fire and Rescue and Mayo Ambulance.
