One person was killed and two others were hospitalized following an accident on US Highway 12 near 429th Street in Menomonie last Friday.

Authorities were dispatched after receiving a report of a crash at approximately 5:15 p.m. According to reports, a 2013 Kia Soul was heading east on Highway 12 when, for yet unknown reasons, it crashed into an eastbound 2004 Chevy Venture. The cars were also hit by a passing 2011 Chevrolet Colorado. Initial investigations say poor road conditions played a role in the accident.

The impact of the collision ejected the driver of the Venture, a 70-year-old man, out of his vehicle. He was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver and passenger of the Kia as well as the operator of Chevy Colorado were taken to a local hospital. Their conditions remain unknown.

No arrests have been made as the investigation is still in progress.
