5 injured in two-vehicle crash near Crookston

Four people were injured, one of them seriously, when two vehicles collided Sunday afternoon near Crookston.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Patricia Boman, 31, Euclid, Minn., was driving south on a township road about 3:20 p.m. Sunday when her vehicle collided with one driven east by Gary Salentiny on Polk County Road 19, also of Euclid.

It happened a half-mile east of U.S. Highway 75 near Euclid, which is about 12 miles north of Crookston.

Boman was taken by ambulance to Riverview Hospital in Crookston, then airlifted to Sanford Hospital in Fargo. A Sanford nursing supervisor said no information on her condition was available Sunday.

A child in Boman's vehicle was taken in a private vehicle to Riverview and treated. Salentiny's wife, Rhonda, and a male juvenile were passengers in his vehicle and were treated at Riverview for injuries.

A sheriff's office spokesman said the township road has a yield sign at the interstection. The investigation was not complete.
