An Albert Lea woman was injured Tuesday afternoon in a crash on East Main Street.

Danielle Schroeder, 22, was taken to Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea with an injury deemed not life-threatening.

Schroeder was driving a 2003 GMC Sonoma pickup truck north on Prospect Avenue, crossing East Main Street, when she failed to yield and was struck on the driver’s side door by a 2014 Ford truck heading east driven by Cameron Hinsch, 23, of Dodge Center, said Albert Lea Police Department Lt. Jeff Strom.

After it was struck, the Sonoma swung around the median and struck a Chrysler Town & Country driven by Judy Eckhoff of Albert Lea before traveling through a median toward westbound lanes and going south over eastbound lanes, crossing a frontage road and coming to a stop outside Green Mill Restaurant & Bar.

A 2-year-old girl in the Sonoma was reportedly safe following the crash.

Hinsch was not taken to the hospital by ambulance following the crash.

Alcohol was not involved in the crash, and everyone involved was wearing their seat belts, Strom said.
