Three individuals were transported to Spencer Hospital with potential injuries and four vehicles were damaged in a five-car pile-up Monday afternoon near the south T intersection of U.S. Highways 18 and 71.

Katherine Meyers, 36, of Spencer, and John Sheridan, 59, of Greenville, were eastbound in their respective vehicles and reported slowing for traffic when Candace Anderson, 33, of Marathon, collided into the rear of Sheridan's vehicle, causing it to bump Meyers' vehicle.

Kayla Barnett, 23, of Rembrandt, slowed her vehicle when she came upon the congestion and was struck by a vehicle driven by Ryan Buckendahl, 29, of Spirit Lake.

Anderson was transported to Spencer Hospital with a possible concussion and minor neck injuries.

A 1-month old girl and 2-year-old girl in Barnett's vehicle were also transported to the hospital, where it was concluded neither child suffered injuries.

Barnett's 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan sustained the most damage, estimated at $4,500, while the damage to Buckendahl's 2004 Ford F-350 was estimated at $1,500.

Anderson's 2004 Chevrolet Impala sustained an estimated $3,300 in damage and had to be forced apart from Sheridan's 2000 Toyota Tacoma, which received an estimated $1,500 in damage.

Meyers' vehicle was not damaged in the incident.

Buckendahl and Anderson were each charged with failure to stop within the assured clear distance, while Barnett was charged with driving without insurance related to an accident.
