Four people, including at least one child, received minor injuries in a hit-and-run crash that resulted in one vehicle crashing into a house at 327 Cherry Street Monday.
Tera Hoseck said she was in her apartment next door when she heard the crash, which took place at the intersection of Cherry Street and Fourth Street at about 4 p.m. A Mercedes SUV that was traveling on Cherry Street was apparently hit by another vehicle that was traveling on Fourth Street.
There is a stop sign for vehicles on Fourth Street at the intersection.
"When I came out of my basement apartment, she already had damage on her car," Hoseck said, describing the Mercedes and its driver. "That¹s when she
backed up and hit the house.
"I didn¹t know what to think. I was just shocked."
Firefighters and an ambulance crew helped the four people in the Mercedes who were injured. The four people taken to the hospital likely had minor injuries, but they were being checked for precautionary reasons, said Lt. Glen Cansler of the Mankato Department of Public Safety.
Police officers were told a Tahoe had left the scene after the crash. A Tahoe officers suspect was involved was found in an alley in the 100 block of Hanover Street and was taken as evidence, said Cmdr. Dan Schisel of the police department. Officers were still looking for the driver of the Tahoe Monday evening.
