A three-vehicle crash at Park Rapids' major inter-section sent one to the hospital and caused a major traffic snarl.

The crash, around 1 p.m. at the intersection of Highways 34 and 71, was apparently caused when a mini-van driven by an elderly man rear-ended a sedan so hard, the second car spun and struck a third one.


"I'm OK but it's hot out here," the driver of the second car said.

"She just tapped me a little bit as she spun around," the third driver said.
