Fatal Motor Vehicle Crash in Credit River Township

On April 1, 2020, at 11:49 a.m., Scott County Sheriff’s Office 911 Dispatch received a report of a two-vehicle crash that occurred at the intersection of Eagle Creek Avenue (CR21) and Natchez Avenue (CR 91) in Credit River Township.


Initial investigation indicates that a 2005 Toyota Corolla was traveling eastbound on Eagle Creek Avenue when it struck a 2018 freight truck that was turning southbound onto Natchez Avenue from the westbound turn lane on Eagle Creek Avenue.


There were three occupants in the Toyota Corolla, two of which were pronounced deceased at the scene.  The third occupant was a juvenile male who was removed from the backseat and transported by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis with serious injuries. 


The driver of the freight truck was identified as Shanan Emmanuel Martin (28) of Maplewood who was uninjured and declined medical attention. 


At this time, it has not been determined if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.


“This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victims,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.


The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in this incident by the Prior Lake Police Department, Prior Lake Fire Department, Allina Ambulance Service, and the Minnesota State Patrol.
