Accident snarls Highway 34 traffic

A two-vehicle accident snarled traffic Thursday afternoon west of Park Rapids on Highway 34.

No one was believed to have been injured in the crash, but traffic delays caused headaches for motorists and law enforcement personnel that responded. Several officers were assist-ing with traffic control.

The accident, 2 miles west of Park Rapids, occurred around 2:30 p.m. By 3 p.m., traffic was backed up in both directions more than one-half mile.

Officers from the Hub-bard County Sheriff's Department and Park Rapids Police Department re-sponded. An ambulance was called as a precaution.
