Nevis accident causes only minor injuries Friday night
A two-vehicle accident that stopped traffic in Nevis Friday evening only resulted in minor injuries.
The accident occurred just after 6 p.m. on Highway 34 and County Road 2, an intersection several bystanders said was a dangerous corner.
According to the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department, a 1999 Subaru Forester driven by Theresa Flamm, 58, of Akeley, was eastbound on Highway 34 and was turning onto County Road 2
During the turn, Flamm apparently pulled in front of a westbound 1996 International Truck being driven by 69-year-old Karl Himan, of Branson West, Missouri.
Himan tried to avoid the vehicle, but they collided, causing severe damage to the Subaru, the Sheriff's Department indicated. Two ambulances from North Memorial were called to the scene, but Flamm was transported to St. Joseph's Area Health Services in Park Rapids by family members for precautionary reasons.
There were no other injuries reported. Nevis First Responders were also on the scene, which drew crowds of people and seasonal travelers during the evening commute and the beginning of the weekend.
The accident is under investigation.
