The weather may have been in a factor in a two-vehicle crash that surprisingly ended up with no one going to the hospital at 4:26 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, said Caledonia Fire Department battalion chief Jeff Henningfeld.

While the official cause of the crash has not been released by the police department, Henningfeld said the wind may have caused the snow to drift over parts of 7 Mile Road just west of Highway 38.

When rescue personnel arrived on scene, a car was on its side after having rolled over into a field and an SUV was in the roadway. A couple of other cars had left the roadway to avoid the crash.

But luckily no one was transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries.

“The way cars are designed these days, they can withstand a lot more impact,” Henningfeld said.

We’ll update the story with more information from the police department tomorrow.
