Clearwater County crash spares two

Two men from Bagley, Minn., were not injured when their vehicles collided Saturday evening in Clearwater County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Clifford Larson, 54, was driving a 1999 GMC Sierra pickup truck northbound on state Highway 92, and beginning to make a left turn at 189th Avenue at 6:24 p.m. Saturday.

At the same time, a northbound 1993 Ford Taurus driven by Payton Erickson, 16, came up from behind and tried to pass Larson on the left as Larson was turning left.

The front left corner of Erickson's Taurus clipped Larson's pickup in the right rear of the box and tire, tearing the bumper off the Taurus and flattening the pickup's right rear tire.

Neither man was injured.

The investigation wasn't complete Sunday, and no information about possible charges or citations was released.

Road conditions were dry on the two-lane blacktop, and night had fallen.
