One taken to hospital following two-vehicle crash south of Park Rapids
One person was transported to the Park Rapids hospital Monday afternoon following a two-vehicle rollover accident south of town on Highway 71.
The victim was complaining of neck and back pain, but a Hubbard County Sheriff's deputy on the scene said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Another occupant of the rolled vehicle appeared uninjured.
The driver of a GMC Sierra, who identified himself as Lewis Stenerson of Frazee, said he became momentarily distracted looking for a women friend who was parked on 120th Street and looked away as he made a left turn onto 120th. The front end of his truck clipped the oncoming vehicle, sending it spinning into the west side ditch. The oncoming second overturned upon impact.
The Minnesota State Patrol was on the scene and traffic was being directed around the accident, which occurred just after 3 p.m.
