Five hospitalized after Friday night accident south of Park Rapids

Five minors were transported to St, Joseph's Area Health Services by ambulance Friday night following a two-vehicle collision at Four Mile Corner.

According to the State Patrol: A 2001 Honda minivan was eastbound on County Road 14 south of Park Rapids at the junction of Highways 71 and 87.

The minivan failed to yield to a northbound 2005 Nissan Sentra, which then T-boned the minivan.

The driver of the minivan was cited for failure to yield.

Three passengers in the minivan and the two occupants of the Sentra were taken by ambulance to the Park Rapids hospital.

The minivan driver was the only one not transported, the Patrol said. Names are not being released because all the occupants were minors. No other information was available.
