Three vehicles were involved in an accident Thursday afternoon in Otter Tail County. A Chevy truck driven by 61 year old Gary Lee Kelm of Battle Lake was traveling south on Highway 78 in Battle Lake and stopped to make a left turn on 260th Street when it was hit from behind by an International dump truck driven by 67 year old Wayne Leroy Braton of Battle Lake.

The impact pushed the Chevy into a northbound lane and into a trailer being towed by a second Chevy truck driven by 48 year old Debrah Rae Lundquist of Battle Lake. Lundquist was taken to Clear Lake Regional Hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Assisting the State Patrol were the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office, Battle Lake Police Department, DNR, Battle Lake Rescue and Ringdahl Ambulance.
