Wilton man injured in alcohol-related crash

A Wilton man was injured in an alcohol-related crash near Highway 2 and Eckles Road New Years Day.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 46-year-old Nicholas Kersting rear ended a Ford Focus in the eastbound lane of Highway 2.

No one in the Focus was injured, but Kersting, who the MSP believes was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the scene.
