The crash was reported at about 1:36 p.m. Wednesday.

Three people were transported to area hospitals following a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon on Manning Avenue in May Township.

The crash occurred when a 37-year-old Forest Lake man, who was traveling northbound on Manning Avenue, attempted to make a pass and struck a 47-year-old Hudson woman’s vehicle—that was travelling southbound on Manning—head-on, Commander Cheri Dexter of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.

The Forest Lake man, and a 29-year-old Forest Lake woman who was a passenger in his vehicle, were both transported to Regions Hospital. The Hudson woman was transported to Lakeview Hospital.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, Dexter said.

The Forest Lake man was cited for careless driving and passing in a no-passing zone.
