A Detroit Lakes woman died and her husband was injured after their car was hit broadside by a semi tractor-trailer rig Thursday afternoon in Audubon.


Arleen A. Hanson, 86, was a passenger in a 2005 Buick LeSabre driven by Duane M. Hanson, 86. He suffered non life-threatening injuries, according to the State Patrol.

The car was traveling eastbound and turned in front of a 2004 Peterbilt semi that was westbound on Highway 10.

The driver of the semi, Ryan L. Englehart, 34, of Jackson, Mo., suffered no apparent injuries.

The crash occurred on dry blacktop in a construction zone. The Becker County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.
