The report indicated Vincent was driving a 2015 Ford Fusion westbound on Interstate 90 and Hernandez was driving a 2000 Dodge Durango north on U.S. Highway 169 in Blue Earth when the vehicles crashed at the intersection at 5:48 p.m.

All but Johnson were wearing their seat belts, and alcohol was not a factor.

The Blue Earth fire and police departments, Faribault County Sheriff’s Office and United Hospital District Ambulance assisted at the scene.

Roads were dry at the time of the crash.
