The Minnesota State Patrol has put out a revised report recounting the accounts of a fatal crash Oct. 4 on Hwy. 212 in Eden Prairie.
The original report said a jeep heading westbound crossed through the median and collided head-on with a Chevy Malibu just before 8 a.m. at Eden Prairie Road. The patrol has corrected its findings and said the Malibu was heading west and crossed the median and hit a Jeep heading east.
The driver of the Malibu, Robert Bartee, 62, of Eden Prairie, died in the crash. The driver of the Jeep, identified by the patrol as Joseph Tupman, 26, of Eden Prairie, was seriously injured.
A third vehicle driven by Kathleen Seck, 73, of Carver, Minn., was also struck. Seck was not injured.
Below is the original report as it appeared online and in the Star Tribune.
